http://ke4fej1.tripod.com/id26.html My neighbor emailed this to me. He want's me to take down my bird feeder. From the website: "Dear ... friends, I do not want to get into the legal aspects of this or try to convince anyone that you should not feed seeds to birds as I know full well that most people enjoy this past time and the joy that it bring to ones life. It is still a free country in my opinion and you have every right to do what you please as long as it doesnt hurt anyone or anything. However, there is a responsibility that goes with using bird seed feeders and Ill try an illuminate that commitment as best I can. The big reason that I do not feed seeds (or grains) to birds is the rodents that will be attracted to the spills below the feeders. "
