u see a moodboard with a black bird in almost every picture. is it a ravenclaw moodboard? the foxhole court? six of crows? the raven cycle? you don’t know. there’s a gay couple. a pile of books. what fandom is it for????? you don’t have a clue. the world may never know.
back when I first started doing photography I had the difficult task of asking all my subjects for their permission to use their image in a photograph. it wasn’t until I finally read the law books that I realized you don’t have to ask permission to take pictures of birds. birds don’t have the same legal rights as humans apparently. outrageous but true
pups dryness, is more important than big pups!
-big pups hands are also full with groceries and busy with holding umbrella for
tiny pub. so he cant put the hood on!.
-the one that can tell me how many birds are in this picture will get a big smooch
Afraid to sit in a park and just
sit there– as if the world will glare at me
The absurd idea of putting my
phone away and sitting as those
who sat before me–
Listening to birds,
smelling flowers, noticing a stranger’s
limp and wondering where
the injury came from–
As if these observations are boring,
unimportant, a waste of time, silly–
As if somehow, staring at my phone
and reading about a stranger
on the news or scrolling through
pictures of birds is more acceptable.
note: so. this was mostly inspired by me walking by a naked man in real life this weekend. i live in a big city where one of the state universities is. lets just say i ran away screaming in terror. but ofc nothing else happened. never saw that man again. a nice butt he had. anyways. im gonna go to church now and say hello to my gOOD FRIEND JESUS CHRIST!!!!!!! AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The bitter cold had lasted longer than normal and you feared that even the first day of spring would be filled with steady snowfall. Your winter had been spent wrapped in blankets, sipping on hot apple cider, and venturing outdoors with scarves nearly constricting your airflow. You thought the cold season was beautiful, but it was only beautiful superficially in your eyes. You didn’t enjoy walking around in layers upon layers of clothing and never leaving your room unless you absolutely had to. Then, one morning, you were greeted by melted snow and grass finally taking on that vibrant green color you missed so much.

A/N: I’ve been writing for this for so long, I’m glad it’s out of my head. I wrote the basis of the fic under the tags for ‘Monochrome’, and a couple of you guys happened to read it and told me I should write it! So thank you to all of you! I hope you guys enjoy!
Why don’t i like using plastic containers for caged birds? I hope the picture comparison is an obvious reason why.
As you can tell from the picture on the left, there is a clear, clean surface on the plastic. This is a new container.
The picture on the right shows a lining that makes the plastic container look cloudy, and have a whitish tinge called bio film. This container is roughly 4 months old. That lining is a major health hazard for your bird as it is full of bacterial growth. Even after scrubbing and cleaning once daily, the bacteria still grows over time and can cause upsets with digestion as the bacteria enters from the water/food into the body causing a bacteria infection and most likely a trip to the vet.
Plastic surfaces are porous, a breeding ground trapping bacteria. To keep a plastic container clean, soaking and through scrubbing in soapy hot water is the only way. Keeping them clean is certainly a challenge and don’t forget about getting those tight corners with a toothbrush.
This reason is why stainless steel and ceramic bowls are a better option for use as food containers - they are non porous.
Lou with his ceramic bowl
Louie has a cermaic bowl designed to hang in bird cages. Providing the cage is spotless and clean enough to eat from the floor, you can use weighted ceramic bowls via placing them on ground level in a ‘no poop’ zone. Placing a ‘dipping’ dish with water next to food will save your bird from climbing up and down to a from the water bowl.
Stainless steel bowls
Stainless steel bowls can come in hanging, screw on, or screw on coup holders.
*Important to note with metal bowls* Do not use galvanised metal bowls as they are coated with zinc to provide a damage proof layer. Zinc and Copper are heavy metal. Heavy metals are toxic to birds If they chew parts of metal cage wires, toys, bowls (even coins) made out of these materials, and the metal doesn’t pass throught the digestive tracts, the chewed pieces sit in their stomach toxins will leech in to the body.
Whatever you decide about which dishes you will use, before you give food or water to your birds, ask yourself, “Would I eat from this dish?”
