I'm all for dinner entertainment BUT.......

I guess when I go out to a meal with friends and family I want to have conversations with them and see how they are getting on with their lives.

I think this type of entertainment is interesting but I wouldn't frequent a restaurant that has it.

Its against the law here to keep a wild bird so nope the cardinal isn't mine.

I have a cardinal pair nesting nearby and love seeing the cock bird in the snow of the yard when I leave seeds out for them, he stands out so beautifully.

I thought it would be cute to have a cardinal in a colored xmas hat in a sig pic with SPX.

Oh it definitely does look cute in your siggy and very Christmassy! Can you not keep any native birds at all? We can but only with certain rules and such, can't just own them! That said I know a few people legally keeping some bullfinches, goldfinches and greenfinches. A guy living round the corner from me has a few. We also have hybrids with canaries called mules. So you can get say a goldfinch mule. I believe they're fine because it's not the native bird... Not sure how that one works actually haha!

Canada and my province Ontario are strict when it comes to wildlife. So nope to any wild type of birds. Especially keeping a wild bird and then letting it go into the wild again, apparently that was a big problem at one time.

Yes I may or may not have done that by mistake. Well, technically we just bought a bird in to pass away as we had found it not doing so well. Other than that we had a jackdaw that would not leave for quite some time that my uncle had popping in the garden when he found some kids throwing him about in the street. We gave him some cat food and that was it. So much fun though! I have a video somewhere...

That is awesome! They are a type of crow aren't they?

I loved how it was looking up at the sky checking out all the activity above. Too smart.

We have the fear of West Nile disease here so we are told to avoid crows ravens and blue jays as they are carriers of the disease. So that might be another reason why we can't have wild birds as pets as well.

If we have a dead crow or jay in our yard we are suppose to call the city to come and collect the body. Its like a freak scene out of a Science Fiction movie with someone suiting up in plastic to collect the birds body and then spraying some chemicals around where the body was.

Then they inspect your yard checking for other dead birds and warn us about watching for any more dead birds should they show up in the yard.

Big city with tons of people living closely side by side any disease that can cause a problem to a person can possibly affect their neighbors especially little kids and seniors who are more susceptible to disease.

There was a sick raccoon in the neighborhood that had distemper and would come out wandering around in the afternoon scaring people because it looked and acted so sick. The city had 4 or 5 city workers running around the block with walkie talkies trying to pinpoint where the thing was they were really serious about catching the raccoon asap.

The city workers would come and remove any raccoon feces and then spray the affected area.

I suppose its a good idea they were so serious about it all and wanted to get it all under control they are only trying to protect us people.

West Nile seems to affect raptors and corvids quite a considerable amount doesn't it? Sounds very OTT and dramatic but hey ho, better to be safe than sorry!

Jackdaws are in the same family as crows, but definitely aren't crows! You've got jackdaws, various species of crows & ravens, rooks, jays. It's quite a substantial family and definitely my favourite to work with alongside vultures!
