    Wonder what the folks fainting thought Eagles ate? All birds with down-curved beaks are meat eaters. Even their pet parakeets and parrots will probably eat meat if given the chance. Those cute little owls also eat primarily meat.

    We used to raise chickens and guineas. I've seen a chicken hawk grab a small chicken and fly off. We raised some guineas and when they got almost grown I let them out. Half of them left and the other half went to the trees to roost. It took a while but they were supper for something. Owls most likely.

    There are enough feral cats in the US to feed every eagle in existence many times over.

    This kind of thing always reminds me of Tennyson. Very long poem with far more to it than just this, but educated people are usually familiar with the most famous lines, even tho they may not understand it.

    In Memoriam Poets' Corner - Alfred, Lord Tennyson - In Memoriam

    All cats are feral. The only exception are those NEVER allowed outside. That according to some National Feral Cat Society, or some such. If allowed out, they are socialized more with other cats than humans. They only keep coming back because they feel no threat and there is easy food and dry, warm/cool accomodations.

    You shouldn't be. Immortal words - thoughts/understanding/wisdom - , such as these from Tennyson and others, lend some perspective to our current troubles and how we think about the existence we have created. :)

    Gunny, I was impressed that you had this swirling around in your head, waiting for a catalyst to bring it into consciousness. I consider myself fairly well-read, but Tennyson wasn't tapping on the inside of my skull.

    And I know you didn't do a google search to relate it to this thread, maybe you did to give a link for us, but I'm sure Alfred was already in your head.

    I'm still impressed....kudos!!!!

    You're right on all counts. I don't claim to memorize such things in toto, and it's much simpler to link to it.

    Not all men, for lack of study in a certain discipline, should be considered ill-educated.

    Art, I know that head of yours is full of things that put a lot of us in awe.
