Subject: RE: BS: Birdwatching 2009
I am pulling the birdfeeders until the cat issue is dealt with. 5 neighborhood cats, all with collars on, are killing or maiming an average of three birds per day now.   They have gotten more savy and skillful. One result is the goldfinches and house finches are starting to avoid the feeders.

This would be easier if I disliked cats. I don't. I think cats are one of the neatest, best, sort-of domesticated animals on earth. However, I also love the birds.
