Living With Wildlife

This posting was sent to me by the Lindsay Museum..."Even though it seems like this is the right season to prune deciduous trees, it's too late to prune without endangering nesting wildlife. Fox squirrels, hummingbirds and band-tailed pigeons begin nesting in January here in the Bay Area and mourning doves begin in February. If you have put off pruning until now, be very careful—look for nests and avoid pruning bushes or trees if you see evidence of a nest." Alexander Lindsay Wildlife Museum

Squirrels are a pest! They eat my oranges. What next? Will the Lindsay Museum also caution folks about disturbing the nests of roof rats?

Some experts. Encouraging the protection of fox squirrels is a perfect example of the foolishness that lp detests.

I never said they were not there. I did comment about Smokeys irrational and alarmist view of these animals as it relates to hikers. It that respect, honey bees are far more dangerous.

Irrational maybe but Alarmist?
