TD, unless you register with Topix, the city that shows up under your name is where you ISP is located. No big deal.

I agree with you. Shame on these thugs who want to burn the birds and kill them.

I love birds and animals. Many of you think that the birds could only live on UI Poles which is not true. They live in trees like other birds. The nests are their home which keep them warm in the winter. UI should watch all their poles, and get rid of the nests before they are being build. I agree with TD Owen,# 21.
I was outrage that UI kill birds.
The nests should be remove before breeding season.

Sorry, can't contain myself on this one. I can't stand animal hating humans. Get over it - they have every right to be here just like us! THE FACT THAT GOD GAVE THEM LIFE IS A RIGHT IN ITSELF! Whether you like it or not! The earth can certainly do WITHOUT humans like you. You only make this world worse with you're hating, evil, cruel, dispositions. Get lost!! I hope a gigantic bird pecks your stupid brain out of your head!
I wish the same for you.

I got a better idea. Let the birds live on your house roof and use it for a bathroom.

people dont understand how smart these birds are. they can speak over 80 words, if kept as a pet. i dont understand how people can hate them. if you sit and watch them, they are funny and smart. maybe some people should sit and watch, so they can lighten up a little. This world has more problems then some birds

Jenn people DO understand how smart these birds are but the ones that the UI wants to be rid of are NOT pets. They are living in the wild and building nests too close to the power lines, which can result in power outages and fires. This is why they are taking the nests down now. Please read what TD Owen posted.

they should have taken the nests down by now. the breeding season is starting, and the birds have multiple clutches, or wait till july when the babies have fledged. they will rebuild. and they are very smart, i have had mine for 16 yrs.
thank god they are not killing them like last time.

I care about wildlife, but Monk parakeets are not native to this area and do not belong here. If there weren't transformers around for them to build their nests around, they wouldn't survive the winter. They were brought here by stupid people and unfortunately, they need to go. We still do not know what sort of impact they have had on native bird populations and whatever their food source is.
