    The person that wrote the last comment wasn't trying to be
    insensitive. You have to understand that when a person appears, in
    their grammar, to not have much education, it is hard to grasp
    that the care won't be compromised. I'm sorry, but I too feel the
    same. These creatures are very complexed and if you cannot
    comprehend correctly, reading, writing, etc., you are doing an
    injustice to them and yourself as well, to live in harmony.

    You're right, it doesn't take an education to have feelings, but
    it does take an education of some form if you are caring for wild
    creatures, because without the basic skills and understanding you
    can do so much harm.

    We are not trying to harp, and this is not the first person whom
    this has been addressed to. We are just concerned bird enthusiasts
    looking out for, and helping with the well-being of the feathered
    friends out there. We (most of us) are here for the same reasons,
    to better help and understand their behavior. Hope you better
    understand now as well.
