Farewell to (backyard)) birds

I don’t often share feelings but I’m rather upset.   I am in a community that has an HOA.   Now that HOA (I have found out) actually prohibits feeding birds.  What it doesn’t prohibit is my next door neighbor buying a pellet gun and proceeding to kill innocent birds.

Once he began doing that I ceased feeding the birds, I won’t essentially bait the birds for him and his target practice.   So – I (and my kitties) will no longer be able to enjoy the colorful, beautiful birds that came to our yard.  I won’t hear their song any more and my cats will now be bored as there will be no activity outside their window when mom goes to work.

I’m very upset and all I want to do is sell this house and leave so I can find a place that lets me care for nature instead of allow people to kill nature.  So I’m putting up a couple of my more recent photos as they’ll be the last in my back yard.   I’ll have to find a new place to see and enjoy birds.
