bonus shot. we found this guy last spring in the grass. his back legs did not work, and we did not want him to turn in to owl lunch. he was fine for about a month and finally died. he had more serious problems than just his back legs not working. My sister in law had to get the kids a domesticated rabbit for Christmas after that.

Sorry tried to go through the science magize, but could not find the original article in english.

However, bottom line makes sense. Due to the reduction in human noise, there is a bird boom on because the mating calls travel further and also reduced stress on the animals.

Now, the mating call, not so sure. The reduced stress on my wild animals in my neighborhood is really obvious. They have no respect nor fear for my authority. My owl follows my car down the road. I have at least 30 birds nesting on property. Half of them in the eves of my house. The mouse has taken up residency in my car engine.

I am looking for a cat, just to put the wild life in check. They are taking over.

I thought you had a car already, who also had a side job as earthquake detector. Although I may have read about it in some old thread. 🤔

Same error message "It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image. Please verify that the URL you entered is correct. " I shrunk the photo to 40% of its original size, I posted it on flickr, added the url in the insert image brackets and keep getting this error message. Maybe it is a filter for those who are not geeks? What am I doing wrong, it is great photo, just tryin to share... I am not a nerd

Inter-species friendship. Cynics would say the hawk was stalking the hapless chicken but the owl sat on Canela's back when there were no chickens around.

I give up, how does one post a photo? Easy please, it is great photo, also I want to post some animal pics in that post for animals
well there is a size limit of about 5 mbs, and if the width is wider than the length it will try to rotate the image.
It has been reduced to 570 KB. I have tried and tried. Uploaded to flickr... here is address. But I want to upload the actual photo, especially on the house-for-rent post. Please tell me how to do it without taking a course. https://flic.kr/p/2jLewWp
