Oh, I buy these wild bird seed bags at the local pet shop, they make it themselves.
No bread or leftover food at all.

What's wrong with bread?

True. ;D

But in truth it's how birds process bread in their digestive system. From what I remember, bread doesn't offer any nutrients they require (or it's a minuscule amount), so it's just empty filler for them. And I think I read somewhere that it can clog up their digestive system. There's also the concern of birds eating moldy bread should the bits be left out where they can get moist and develop mold.

Bread is ok for some birds not all. Some will feed it to chicks (2nd & 3rd Clutches) this time of year and some chicks cannot digest it. you can feed fats and bread in the Autumn & Winter and wild bird food in the Spring and Summer.

Uh, birds. I returned to my condominium room after around several months of being away (covid 19 quarantine and what not). I returned to find out that my washing machine that was located on the outside balcony was almost wholly covered in bird excrement (yuck!). Later, I even walked into some fat pigeons perched around there trying to take another dump again. Arghhh, those bloody birds!  >:(

She was somewhat of an infuriating character in Suits, and I've watched only the first season, hahah.

I'm getting of "the outdoors" - I wish I could go somewhere indoors without other people ( ;D )
Yesterday I went for a walk around a reservoir, today I'm going to one of the local parks, just not to spend my holidays at home...

Woke up with fever and a dry cough. Possible symptoms of corona so I got tested. Now I'm in quarantine until I get the results...

Eeek, hope it's negative, or if it's positive, that you get better soon and don't have lasting effects

Hi Henry hope you are negative. I was fairly sure I had Corona as I have an evil sore throat and dry cough. I wasn't tested as the UK was only testing hospital admissions at that point. My daughter had the same, and we both had to self-isolate. Her test result was negative as she had pretty much what I had had I doubt my mystery illness was corona.

BTW I gargled with neat vodka to help the throat. It cleared all the clag out of it that was making it hard to breathe.
