Why is it "not possible" to say that people, based on different ethnic or racial genotypes, have different personalities, intelligence strengths, and weaknesses? One can witness the behaviour of birds, like blue jays which are more aggressive, compared to the demeanor of cardinals, which seem to be less aggressive – - they are not "trained" or conditioned to be the way they are, but instead exhibit these behaviours from there genetic makeup. So why cannot various races of people act differently based upon their genetic makeup?
Its beginning to look like the Cardinals and Blue Jays in the World Series.
It would be the first time two bird teams have ever met in the big one!

I live in snow covered Michigan. As long as the ground is snow covered I have been feeding the birds every day and usually the same cast of characters show up: starlings,sparrows ,cardinals,blue jays,morning doves and pigeons. Is this "spoiling" the birds making it this too easy for them,keeping them from learning to being more self sufficient or has it been the right thing to do in snow and cold of Michigan ?
I have had seed for food every day on the ground for the last couple months this winter in michigan, I have been getting sparrows, cardinals, blue jays, morning doves, black birds, starlings and junco. Today I put out suet and it is ignored by the birds, why ?
I have bird seed and baked goods for food in the yard constantly. Its vey cold and snow covered here in Michigan. I am getting mostly sparrows, cardinals, blue jays ,blackbirds,starlings, morning doves and junco.Someone told me all I am doing is supplementing their diet, that they are wild birds, know how to survive and find other food. When I put the seed and food on the ground they are usually there within seconds. Am I supplementing their food or is it primary souce ?
I have a few bird feeders in my back yard and I love feeding the birds, but I have so many doves. Is there any seed they won’t eat? Also, will red-winged blackbirds eat safflower seed? Another thing, how do I get the blue jays to come to the feeders? I have a wide variety of birds-red-bellied woodpeckers, downys, cardinals, goldfinches, hairys, sparrows, house finches, crackles, rose-breasted grosbeaks, and of course doves, but I can’t get blue jays! Any help would be appreciated.
I live in the UK and it is legal to own most things over here and I was just wondering if you can own any of these birds as pets
1 – Toucans
2 – Jays
3 – Blue jays
4 – Cardinal birds
5 – Rheas
6 – Starlings (Exotic)
7 – Seagulls
8 – Magpies
9 – Pink pigeons (Yes, they exist, and on Wikipedia it put them under "Aviculture" So I just want to know.)
10 – Turacos
11 – Secretary birds (YES I DO mean falconry but I love birds of prey and would be willing to train as a falconer)
12 – Kookaburras (I saw a lot at the exotic pet centre)
13 – Orioles
14 – Pheasants
and finally – Birds of Paradise
Any info on this would be appreciated and PLEASE don’t tell me any rubbish like "It’s illegal in AMERICA because of the Migratory bird act" or "It’s not a good idea" or anything, I just want to know if these birds are legal or not.
Ive started seeing this red cardinal in my backyard about two days ago when it was with its mate. Its quite pecurliar and interseting to have him as I live in texas and i never really see them that often. Is there anyway to keep him coming back because i really like seeing him.
Ps: I dont have a bird feeder and there are also squirrels, blue jays, grackels, and these little sparrow birds (which i dont think will harm him) could any of these pose a threat to the cardinal and is there anyway to see if he and his mate are nesting in one of my trees as i have two oak trees and the past two days i havent seen his mate. Just wondering. Really exciting for some reason!
I am getting a flock of sparrows, blue jays, pigeons, black birds,starlings, junco and cardinals to my bird seed in the back yard and they all eat together happily except the cardinls. I notice with the cardinals- the male comes to the feeding spot and the if female is already there it flys away. The female never stays, when a male shows up. Also the cardinals rarely eat together even if the same sex. What is going on here ?
Would most birds like sparrows, cardinals, junco, blue jays and other winter birds die if not for people feeding them ? How else would they eat and what would they eat ?
