Injured Crow in My Garden?

Question by Atropine: Injured Crow in My Garden?
About an hour ago my and my mum found a crow in our back garden – it was just walking around and wasn’t flying, and its rear feathers looked a little ruffled. I have been supplying it with fresh water which it has been drinking, and we have called my local animal rescue. They will be coming sometime today, however that could mean an hour or more. I would like some advice on how to look after it during that space of time.

Also, I believe some teenagers were in that area around the time we found it, so I believe they could have been distressing the bird.
NEVER MIND.
It turns out the bird was a young crow (they look huge), and it must’ve fallen into our garden whilst trying to fly. The RSPCA came and re-united it with it’s mummy and daddy.

Answer by Baylian’s Mommy
try putting the bird in an area that is dark and warm. Darkness will calm the bird and keep it calm until the animal rescue and come and get him/her. try putting it in a box or something. Most places reccomend you not giving it any food or water, but I don’t see where giving it some water is going to harm it. best of luck!

How can I keep the neighbor’s cats from my bird feeders?

Question by Mathguy: How can I keep the neighbor’s cats from my bird feeders?
I have tried some commercial powders, chili powder, etc around the feeders and in my flower beds.
I have even asked(nicely) for them to keep their cats indoors or offered some bells for them. They refuse. What do you suggest?

Best answer:

Answer by C
Live trap, then a one way trip to the local humane society. I know that will get me a lot of criticism from cat lovers, but why should this bird lover have to have her birds slaughtered by people who let their cats run amuck?

When will birds find my feeder?

Question by Rachel Seagull: When will birds find my feeder?
It’s summer in Wisconsin and I put up two feeders. One is squirrel proof, another is a platform with protective cover. I also hung up nesting material for any species nesting right now. It has rained for the past two days and the feeder has only been up for two days, but I am just so eager to see birds! The bird food I use is the Wild Birds Unlimited No Mess Blend.

Does anyone know how long it typically takes birds to find new feeders? My neighbor has a feeder and a bird bath too. Thanks!

Best answer:

Answer by Cowboy’s Sweetheart
Most birds have plenty to eat now. they will come in the fall when food starts to get scarce. Spring is the big time for nesting. Remove the food from the feeders. It will be spoiled by next spring and make the birds sick.

Is this fictional garden realistic?

Question by S T: Is this fictional garden realistic?
The two women spent the day at Mrs. Oliver’s house, canning blackberry jam and baking torts to freeze for later. Every hour, the bell on the Chapel by the Sea would strike and Mrs. Oliver would compare it against the clock on her mantle. Between the bustle in the kitchen, they found time to play cards out on the patio.
Mrs. Oliver had created a botanical garden in her backyard, modeling it after the house on Mt. Jötnar. She had an elaborate fountain in the center with little cherub statues atop. Almost everyone who saw it commented on the grandeur and how color coordinated her yard seemed. She had separated the warm colors, placing all the bright splashes of purple, plum and pale violet in one corner. The rich burgundy smoke tree was surrounded in royal irises with long healthy blooms. Russian sage and Spanish lavender lay peacefully around the edges with blue-green, silver, and chartreuse foliage. To the other side, the warmth intensified with fiery shades of dahlia, coleus, and sedum. The crimson blooms were surrounded in red fountain grass. High up in an old elm that shaded the yard she had several bird feeders and a curious squirrel who always seemed to appear when guests were near. Today, he’d dropped a walnut and was scurrying down to retrieve it.
While they played cards, they conversed with ease. They spoke of Ilsa’s new employers mostly.
“She’s a bit younger than he is,” Ilsa said. “But they seem very happy together.”

It sounds lovely. Just one bit though…The garden of the “cool” plants was so in-depth with so many beautiful varities. I could picture them all in my minds eye. However, there are only dahlias, coleus, sedum and red fountain grass on the “warm” side?

There are so many warm colored plants. I was surprised not to read of a beautiful deep red rose bush, geraniums, red gerbera daisies, a beautiful hibiscus etc. Still it sounds like a very lovely garden. I prefer splashes of color here and there. Something a little less formal, where I could plop down barefoot with a glass of ice tea
