    Keep in mind if you feed wild animals and birds , they become dependent on it and do not teach the young how to fend for themselves . Result , when the food stops the birds die all over your lawn waiting for food.

    That's silly, birds are very intelligent. I live in the country and have been feeding my little birds for over 50 years. I often go on trips and when I get home I have never found dead birds from starvation. The worst case I found they will move on or just forage as they always do. If they move on, sometimes they will not be seen again but in most cases it may take a while but they will normally return over time.
