She is also really bad about doing #2 in the house instead of outside. We clean the mess up with nature's miracle and everything. I have never...

Re: What happened to the birds?

Birds are EXPENSIVE to feed and with an extremely weak economy it is hard to justify wintering over lots of expense that very well may not have anywhere to go.

The winter was a hard one too so expect to pay a premium for flight conditioned birds in the spring.
