A-Z Challenge – U is for Upland Game Bird

Upland Game Birds are a select species of birds in the Phasianidae family with the exception of the Northern Bobwhite and Scaled Quail that are in the Odontophoridae family, plus the Plain Chachalaca in the Cracidae family.

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Birds in color and Mono

Birds are hunted for sport and for eating. While my opinion is exceptionally one-sided, I do not condone the killing of birds for sport. I know that it is necessary to thin species out like big wild game such as deer and elk, but I don’t see the point of it unless it is to put food on the table. Many of our favorite edibles are farm raised. For many years, these birds have been kept in small quarters and not allowed to graze and be happy birds. In the last few decades, awareness has shown new trends of “grass fed”, “organic fed” “no hormones or antibiotics” and “happy free range” which indicates these birds have a happy life while they are here. It keeps them from being stressed out and makes our food a lot tastier.

Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #13

Some species like the white geese will become aggressive if you feed them. On more than one occasion, this has happened to us. The Florida State Fair Authority in Tampa had to have them removed from the grounds because they were attacking people getting out of their cars at the Administrative Building. The Florida Fish & Wildlife relocated them to a different location.

Fifty million Elvis fans
