How can I stop my dog from going nuts around my bird?

Question by anonymous: How can I stop my dog from going nuts around my bird?
We added a bird to our family a couple weeks ago, and my dog didn’t care at first. Now, it’s all he cares about. He won’t stop scratching at the door, literally all day. He’s upset and very stressed. The bird will be leaving in a couple of weeks, but what can I do for now? We’ve tried introducing them through cages, tiring out the dog with long walks, and he still won’t calm down? Any suggestions?

Try ditching the grass and covering it with cement.

The thing about nature is that without man intervention it’ll overgrow anything within an amount of time.

by rikdom

Question by mark g c: Found 2/3 inch brown frog in flower( front) garden! What to do?? Qucik answers needed!?
I live in central Ireland. Frog was in among some old sticks and weeds. There is no water source near and is unclear how it got there. Probably dropped by bird. 10 or more years ago we had frogs in our back garden but it is walled in now and we,ve plenty of cats in area. Where do i put it. Is it essential for it to be by water or will a wild gared do? Next doors back garden is unkempt and has plenty of hiding place. O r there i9s the canal further up the road, would it be ok there? Plenty of rats in there I think…………

Are you sure it’s not a toad? Just let it go in your garden, he’ll be happy there. Darwinism.

Q&A: Bird window crash. How long before I should be concerned?

Question by Denise: Bird window crash. How long before I should be concerned?
I was home at the time and heard the Bohemian Waxwing hit immediately. Ran down to it, and it was upside down, mouth was hanging open, neck twisted and breathing really hard. So thinking along the lines of nursing school, I knew breathing was its first priority. Held it cupped in my hands and saw no blood or obvious external injury. Within seconds, held head up on its own. Tried to perch in a tree, but was still too dazed. I knew the longer I held it, the more stress it could cause, so I set him down in my garden and keep checking on him every 20 mins. Earlier, he did not show any response when I approach, but just now he is raising his crown and ruffling feathers and even opened his mouth when my hand got to close (trying to get a response). I’m feeling like these are positive signs of better cognitive coherancy, he seems to be defending himself, so my thinking is to leave him completely along for an hour. He hopped a couple times from me, but has not attempted to fly yet. This crash happened 2 hours ago. How long should I wait before deciding to call a wildlife rescue? I have had already had 2 birds die on my windows and am told its because I washed them last week. I put up some halloween decals now, hoping to prevent more bird colisions.

It sounds like you are already concerned…but I think that maybe you should feed it something. That is what I would think if it opened its mouth. I would take the bird to the vet. For preventing more crashes, I think you should put up curtains so that they don’t think they can just fly into your house.

Tipson how to buy nice bird house

Tipson how to buy nice bird house

Buying a bird house kit is one way of doing that, but making your own bird house is very easy.

 

If you’re interested in one particular species then it may help to put out a bird feeder too. Different birds prefer different foods as well as different bird houses. By putting out the correct food you increase your chances of your bird using your bird house. Learning something new by the child and yourself will build memories that will last forever.

 

Whichever way you decide to go, whether to buy a bird house kits or build from scratch you should emphasize how much fun you are having. And also, you’re making a difference in the world. By including your children you are opening their eyes to mother nature and possibly changing their lives forever.

 

When you have completed the project and have yours hanging in the tree and see birds using it you will feel pride and you will get pleasure just from watching our feathered friends. The best way to attract the is to put birdhouses in you yard. They love to eat different kind of insects such as mosquitoes, beetles, dragonflies and moths. They also prefer grassy open stream sides, large forest openings close to lakes and ponds or even river bottom lands.

]]>

 

Purple Martins are the only kind of birds that are totally dependent to humans especially on providing them a place where they can live with. The food in these feeders will keep the birds from getting hungry no matter what season of the year it is. The birdfeeders can be found in many different styles of figurines incorporated into the feeding dishes. Add some seed each day to keep the feathered friends coming by.

 

Don’t forget to add a bird bath, to the bird houses, for the birdies to splash in. This could be in the form of a pond, stream or as simple as putting a bird bath in the garden. Keep the bird bath water fresh or they may want to move out. Birds will nest where water is abundant and not too far away.

 

Second, in order to better your odds you can supply them with a food source near the bird house as this will keep them coming back and eventually take home in your offering. There are many vendors that sell squirrel proof bird feeders for your garden and they work quite well.

 

Third and most important, try to place the bird house in an area where there is very little human traffic and safe from all predators. This is most important because the birds want to feel safe and if the house is hung by a children’s play set or by a sidewalk that has people walking by daily then the chances are the birds will not feel safe and move on. Make sure natural predators can’t get to the house such as cats, snakes, or any other natural predator you have in your area.

 

Lastly, face the bird house with the back facing the wind. For instance, if the wind normally comes from the west you’ll want to set it up with the entrance facing east. This will allow the birds to stay dry when it rains and allow them to stay warm on those cooler spring nights.

Cheap Garden Gnomes?

Question by Meridianhawk42: Cheap Garden Gnomes?
The last time I visited my parents, I noticed my mom had put out some ceramic frogs by her bird bath. In the past, I’ve had to listen to her complain about some of the things people stick in their yards, and now here she is doing it herself. I’m wanting to get her a garden gnome as a gag gift for Christmas, but the cheapest ones I can find are horribly expensive for a gag gift. I’m looking to spend $ 10 or less for a decent sized one. I want to get her a real gift too, but I won’t be able to afford it with the price of these ceramic nightmares. It doesn’t have to be perfection, I just want it to resemble the gnome on those commercials, maybe pushing a wheelbarrow.

Does anyone know a place that sells cheap garden gnomes? I’ve already tried some of the local hardware stores and garden centers, but surprisingly enough….no gnomes. Where are the little buggers hiding? Thanks.

Answer by DogAddict
It may be worth a try to go to Walmart. Also, have you check the dollar stores? I’d also check ebay. But they may not be cheap to ship.

Answer by Crone
Not all frogs and toads need to live in wet places.

In our area, there are eagles that fly away with 4-5 lb. young salmon. I’m sure that there are other birds of that stature (condors?) ARE there birds in central Ireland that can carry things as big as your toad?

I doubt your garden wall is frog-proof. If there were frogs before, they could be now.

Maybe it’s been living next door?

There are plenty of places a frog can be cat-safe. We don’t notice them, because we’re looking from a different perspective.

Be glad you’ve seen it: in many parts of the world, toad and frog populations are depleted or gone.

One of the worst predators on frogs and toads are people. Please, put the critter back where you found it. There’s probably a good reason why it was there.

Do you really think QA people know a frog’s needs better than the frog itself?

What is the smallest cage I can get for a talking bird?


by urtica

Question by a l e x: What is the smallest cage I can get for a talking bird?
I want a bird that can learn to “talk” (say a few words). What is the smallest species or “talking” bird I can get and how big does the cage have to be (include a google picture link of the right sized cage if you can)?

Best answer:

Answer by stop_staring_please
The smallest talking parrot would be a parrotlet aka pocket parrot. The worlds smallets parrot.

also, cockatiel, quaker, greencheek conure. All would fit in this cage comfortably…

http://www.petco.com/product/100285/Prevue-Finch-Flight-Cage.aspx

Do not buy a bird just because it will talk. You might be sadly mistaken. Male cockatiels are the only ones that talk. You may get a female. there is no way to know without a dna test. birds are like people..they have their own mind…their own personality. they may talk..they may not. research more thoroughly before you purchase a bird. they are a huge commitment. Not like a dog or a cat. they need much more care and attention.
