You both sound like dumb, stupid, ignorant hicks. Makes me wonder if you hate people as much as you hate animals.

Here's a short lesson in nature, okay, Boys?

There is flora (plants) and fauna (wildlife). Both need each other to survive.

Within the fauna, there is predators and prey. They need each other to remain strong and healthy.

The various species are very different from one another. God made each that way for a reason. They all fill a different niche. That is what makes them so enjoyable to watch and observe. They are not expected to behave like humans. It would be boring if they did.

Cowbirds niche was to follow herds of bison as they roamed the country. They did not have the ability to raise their own young because the herds moved on, so they laid in other birds' nests. Some birds recognize the foreign eggs and reject them. Others don't. But each species still went on.

This is what cowbirds do to this day. If anything, I feel sorry for them- not knowing the love of their young and all...:) But it's nature. It's just what they do. It does not make them evil. Okay, so we control them when they start to affect endangered species. I can deal with that. But they are still one of GOD'S creations. To hate them and indisciminately kill them is to tell God he effed up. I believe God knew just what he was doing.

BS, Churm- "there were no blackbirds in AR in the 60's." You just didn't see them, as most people sill don't. I have watched humans go about their daily routines not noticing a thing while I'm watching 5 million birds soar above their heads. be it hawks, blackbirds, robins or swallows.

Only when I've pointed it out did the people say "Wow! I didn't see them until you showed me."

You both make it sound like predation in order to live is a bad thing. Yet you kill even when it has nothing to do with your survival. Time to grow up boys.

Nope we didnt have the humongus swarms of black birds until the sixties. Until then cotton was king. 99 % of the farm land was planted in cotton. There where cotton gins on every corner. Cotton = no food for those blackbirds. Then They put crop subsudys on rice ,wheat & soybeans and the blackbird populations exploded. Now its rare to see a cotton field. the gins are all torn down. I notice everything. everything regesters its second nature to me. the hawks & birds on the power lines the road kill along the road. the places where game trails cross the road. the cuttings left by the squirrl the scat left by coon fox deer rabbits etc. I constantly read sign. a reciently damaged fence where a human climed over or a deer got hung up. I see a horse deer cow or any animal looking at something and I notice what has them concerned. anything out of place or unusual is noticed. Thats why im good at killing hunting & trapping. If im downwind of someome smoking a cigarette or anything making noise I could easily sneak up on them within shotgun range. Im simply gifted in that way. Someone shoots and wounds a animal and it runs off. I can track and find it. We never had the big blackbird flocks or coyotes here until the mid sixties.

no blackbirds roosted in my cedar glade this year. and ive caught two housecats reciently. and coyotes kill cats. Ive not seen any coyote sign not heard them howling & yelping so Ive been successful in significantly reducing their numbers. Today I noticed where a beaver was chewing on a large tree thats near the creek bank along the highway. Ill go see if the owner of the land will let me trap it. Good eating and a $15 bounty for the tail.

I pretty much wiped the coyotes off of my place also. There are still so many more to harvest around here.

So you trespass? like to kill all the wild life?

You might be 100% right about when coyote numbers increased . Where I am at they howl every night.

Even I might try to legally trap coyotes some next year.
We have red foxes that don't cause much damage so I leave them a lone , possums are a different story and they really are big chicken killers.
some info you might enjoy
even though it might not be 1005 factually correct

Coyote
(Canis latrans)
In Arkansas, the coyote originally was found in the more open areas of western Arkansas. But with
changing agricultural practices, such as clearing of timberlands and creation of more open lands, the
coyote extended its range to the central part of the state by the early 1950s and over the entire state by
the early 1960s. Presently, coyotes are common in every Arkansas county, but are an underused resource.
Coyotes can be beneficial,since they consume large numbers of rodents, scavenge for dead animals and remove crippled and diseased deer
from the deer herd.
Coyotes are controversial, since they sometimes prey upon game animals and domestic animals, such as
cats, dogs and occasionally
upon poultry and other
livestock
. However, proper animal husbandry
measures can control most depredation problems.
Bowhunter observation data provides some modest support for the popular perception that coyote
populations are increasing in the state, however, the large amount
of annual variation in observation
rates and relatively short time frame over which the survey has been conducted make
such
determinations difficult
. However, it is clear that recreational harvest, aided by very liberal hunting,trapping and nuisance wildlife control regulations, is not reducing
coyote populations on a statewide level. Coyote control can only realistically be achieved on a local scale, and only then if a significant effort is made on a sustained basis.

LOL. Only blackbirds can make blackbirds. Blackbird populations were already large. You just didn't know it because they were someplace more supportive of them. Any change in the landscape will cause changes in the flora and fauna as food, nutrients, water levels and the amount of sunlight changes. Changes are not always bad.

MY God, Dude!! You share this land with all kinds of WONDERFUL creatures, each having a different purpose and filling their own unique niche! The beaver is just one of them. I wouldn't kill that animal if Icould get $15 million for the tail! Have you no morals?

There you go again talking crap you have heard on Fox, that you do not have a clue what it even means.
1.Normalization of the filibuster has effectively eliminated any reason for a Senate majority to adopt a budget.
2.A budget has no real legal authority.
3.It is not a law.
4.The budgets approved by the different Houses of Congress are basically just statements of intent. It is mostly just a declaration of what the majority wants to do.
5. While a budget is not subject to a filibuster basically every bill is. The Senate majority could approve a budget but thanks to the filibuster being used to create a de facto 60 vote threshold, the majority is unable to even get any bills based on its budget out of the Senate.
6.There is no point in creating a legislative blueprint when you lack the ability to turn those plans into action. The routine use of the filibuster has eliminated any logic for a Senate majority approving budget.
"But in today’s contentious political climate the filibuster has been used in record numbers (nearly 400 times in the 112th Congress) to block votes and debate, and the requirement for 60 votes to end a filibuster has proved virtually insurmountable"

I think you need to go batting practice big boy.
