Next we will have to take the glass out of our windows so they don't slam
into them. We probably better bury all powerlines just incase a bird is
carrying a ground wire. Oh yes bird baths have to have life guards now and
no more that 1/2" of water heated in the Winter so our feathered friends
don't slip off.

of my tower life I've never seen a Mr. Magoo bird injured, maimed, or do

those "dangerous doves" ..
