I HATE THIS TOWN.........I HATE THIS STATE Evil, wrong doing Seeing red/mad Seeing red/mad Evil, wrong doing

Fireworks are legal here. They are sold in the supermarkets and there is a stand for the last week on every street corner. We're not talking about just sparklers and small firecrackers, they allow all forms of rockets, ect. to be sold.

My ferals have all come home to roost for the night. It is not even dark yet and the entire neighborhood is out in the streets. They have started with just the small firecrakers and my poor ferals are soooooooo spooked. They keep flying off in all directions and returning just to be spooked again. I hope by the time it gets dark that they will be back in their spot and not be off God knows where for the remaining night.

I know there is nothing I can do to help them tonight. I am just so worried about them and I am so upset to see them frantic and scared like this.

Sorry for the rant. boom boom

I just came back in from the backyard. Out of approx 50 birds that stay here there are only 3 left on the roof. Even the ones that are sitting on nests and babies are gone. I can see them flying around aimlessly.

I hope they will be allright.

This is really upsetting to watch.

About 10 more have come home and settled down under the back roof. My white bird is one of them YESS!! Thank God......you know how I worry about that one.

It's almost completely dark now. I guess the others will stay wherever they landed. I can't see them flying anymore.

This is awful.

I am so sorry to hear about what's happening to your flock, Louise. Disappointed
I'm glad that at least some returned. MY FERAL FLOCK IS FRANTIC 116281
I will think positive thoughts that the remaining find a safe place to sleep tonight. Pigeon angel

We haven't heard a thing. MY FERAL FLOCK IS FRANTIC 559177
I'm hoping that holds true for the rest of the night. Fingers crossed

Very sad
I can only imagine how frightening it must be for the poor ferals.

PostSubject: Ferals have returned   MY FERAL FLOCK IS FRANTIC Icon_minitimeMon Jul 05, 2010 7:44 am

The majority of the flock returned this morning for their early feeding. MY FERAL FLOCK IS FRANTIC 395766

They seem very skiddish and nervous as compared to their ususal behavior. It took them quite awhile to come down from the roof and eat the seed. I really think it will take them a few days to get over last night and get back to normal.

I'm very glad that the 4th is only once a year......Poor ferals really suffered last night. Very sad

OMG, same thing here last Sunday. But in my end , it's my neighbor's 3 legged old dog. My neighbors left that day not knowing that the dog was able to get out of their gate. I saw her in their front yard trying to get some shade. I called her and offered her a bowl of water. First time I hang out in my front yard sitting with a dog by my side. And she's the sweetest dog I've ever met. We hang out for about half hour then I had to get in and she attempted to follow me. I could not let her in because of my pijs. I texted my neighbors but by the time they came back home, it was almost dark and the fireworks started. They couldn't find the dog anymore....and I regret why I did not let her in my backyard. My neighbor said she was gone before for 2 weeks and came back. I hope she's fine.

I sympathise with you. I hate it when fireworks and very loud noises disturb the birds, and not only. We get fireworks on New Year's Eve, patron saint's day, election time, any old excuse!
The latest events were on June 13th (St. Anthony's day), June 24th (St. John's, town patron, lots of fireworks, loudspeakers in the street for the drunks to dance to until 5 am) and June 29th (St. Peter's). And also on many other occasions...
Then there's the low-flying planes with advertising banners, going to and fro over the crowded beach and along the river, and the microlites flying over the house every blooming summer weekend, scattering pigeons and seagulls and annoying the living daylights out of me! At times like that I'm very thankful that Santa didn't give me a Kalashnikov for Christmas...

You're exactly right, Teresa, some will use any excuse to set off fireworks. Seeing red/mad

We're pretty darn lucky around our neighborhood. It's very quite.
Either we're all very 'boring' or have a lot of common sense about us. Hmmm
Whichever, I'm glad I live here. YESS!!

We have people next door who are renters, and they do the same thing. My poor birds get nervous, but at least they are in their loft, not flying wildly all over the place. I would have been terribly upset seeing that. My poor dog vibrates, she shakes so hard. What makes people act so stupidly?

It's very stressful, and I too wonder why some people can't have fun without being extremely noisy!

My daughter said something quite valid, though. She said that, even though we get lots of fireworks and disturbances, they won't be as frightening to wildlife and pets as the 4th July fireworks, because these go on for a very long period of time and they are set off almost everywhere at once. Except for where Cindy lives, by the looks of it, so she can host the (silent) party next year! That's too funny That's too funny That's too funny

Many people just don't even consider that maybe their good time could be disturbing someone else. And the sad thing is that even if they do realize it, that they just don't care. Must be great to be in Cindy's neighborhood. MY FERAL FLOCK IS FRANTIC 395766

I must admit, I did 'faintly' hear a couple fireworks, but they were way off in the distance.
