      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

To Kill A Mockingbird

Recommended Posts

I mockingbird has decided my house is his house. He takes dive bomber runs on anyone that walks on my driveway or front lawn. I gotta get rid of him. Any ideas? Guns are out, I live very close to other houses.

Lighten up. It's probably nesting once the little ones are gone the attacks will cease. Locally there are two or three pix every year of Mocking birds dive bombing local cats.

I'm reasonably certain he's not trying to molest it, it's probably a physical impossibility . He just wants it to go away.

Doing anything to force the Bird to go away falls under the heading of Molesting.

 

 

BTW That is why ALL CAT OWNERS SHOULD BE LOCKED UP IN FEDERAL PRISON.

 

The non-native, domestic feline is the Number 1 killer of native Songbirds in the USA

 

You want a cat as a pet? No problem. Just keep them inside! Then lets gather up all feral cats.

I rescued a mockingbird a couple of mornings ago from my cat. This morning he was singing away in the front yard tree. Don't ask me how I know, I just do.

 

And ditto on why it is dive bombing, there is a nest close by. It will pass.

I grew up with indoor outdoor cats. They are great little hunter squirrel rats lizards rabbits etc but the biggest battle was with the blue jays. Every now and then we got a present of a pile of blue feathers. Heartwarming

In Oz there is a bird called a Magpie that does the same. Usually attacks from behind. One defence is to draw a pair of eyes on the back of an old hat. Said to be effective. Never needed to try it though.

I hate that fucker he's a fan of USCUM. I say fan rather than alumni because 9 out of 10 canes fans never attended the university. Anyway to answer your question no I live in Tampa and he lives in North Havana having washed up there during the Mario boatlift. He's essentially an illegal resident alien

 

Troubling :(

I can't believe how many of you look to kill god's creatures. Just amazes me.

 

That sentence is mutually exclusive. If they're God's creatures then all they're doing is returning 'em to God.

Is it ok to mock them?

 

I love the video of that black cat.... you can just see what passes for a thought process in the feline mind. "Gee, that bird is annoying.... but not so annoying that I'd actually go to the effort of standing up, abandoning my spot in the sun, and walking over to the patio and lying under the table. And, yeah, while catching it would be satisfying, it's just not worth getting myself right-side-up and jumping into the air."

Screwing is about the only hobby I can afford right now. No progress on the kitchen. I am broke as fuck tight now. Should be starting a kitchen remodel this week I'd the designer can get her shit together. Should be a decent enough job to get my ass back to zero. Once I rein in the failure of my business, I'll go back to throwing money back into the giant pit of dispair that is my house.

There was no molestation, anything the happened was consensual and mutual.

Back in Bama there was a Mockinbird that used to annoy the crap out of some poor cat. Everywhere that cat went, the bird dive bombed him, he got used to walking around with his head sort of low, but what you wrote is exactly what I thought ... that cat could have put one paw and one sharpened nail into the air and end it once and for all, that bird wouldn't have had a chance.

 

But it was apparently easier for the cat to just deal with constantly being dive-bombed.

 

I think Nacra is right, although it need not necessarily be a kill swing, just a tap. These birds have been left alone by us KFC-eating humans for so long that they have apparently convinced themselves that they are not the fragile little feather-dusters that Mother Nature made them to be. Around here, there are lots of Canadian Geese. They'll stand in front of the car on the road without worry, they'll run up to people and honk, basically making nuisances of themselves. But at any moment, they are one hand-swipe away from having their neck in fist. That would probably give them the human fear they apparently need. I stopped slowing down for them when they're in the road, lo and behold, they can move pretty fast when a ton-something truck is headed at them.

We raised Toulouse Geese for almost 20 years....they make great watchdogs...if there was something on the property day or night, they let us know.

 

Geese can be tenacious and terratorial, even if they know they have no chance of winning, something comes in their territory and usually they don't back off.
