Actually you know what. Just don’t mow. Get rid of your lawnmower. Turn your whole yard into a wildflower field or an edible garden. Lawns are the invention of the upper class to show wealth through wasted plots of grass that is meticulously tended for no reason other than to be grass. It’s literally an empty plot of land they kept because they had so much money they didn’t need it to grow food. Not using a yard as just a yard is an act of rebellion.
One of the main industries still supporting lawns is chemical pest control companies, and they’re also responsible for the insecticides that crashed the bird populations in the 40s and 50s as well as a lot of what’s killing bees and butterflies now. The herbicides they produce specifically targets “bad” plants like dandelions, buttercups, and clovers, which are plants bees rely on for early spring feeding. Grass is just grass; it would be great for feeding small mammals if people would let it grow more than three inches, but they won’t.
So, yeah. Kill lawnmower culture. Plant some native flowers. Grow some vegetables and fruit trees. Put out bird feeders and bee sugar spots and homes for both. Be kind to bugs and birds and rabbits and opossums and whoever else might wander by. Make your neighborhood a lot more beautiful.
I love having a parrot because one minute they are the most beautiful creature ever to exist and the next they’ve turned to face you straight on and you’re cry-laughing because from the front they look like someone put googly eyes on a banana
If you mean “can birds knowingly go out and acquire illegal psychologically modifying chemicals for recreational use” I would say definitely not. However, birds can and have been observed getting totally sauced on various delicious fermented fruits.
yo what did you do to your taz drawings to give them that delicious soft vellum look? bless u
merge all your layers, duplicate, put a gaussian blur on the top layer (the amount will vary with how big ur drawing is, but just make it so it looks all fuzzed out), then set the blurred layer to like 30-40% opacity!
“Cause if you liked it then you should have put a wing on it !”
The first time I heard this song I really heard “put a wing on it” and I imagined a clip about birds or something, or seeing wings …. but not at all xD (when you are french, sometimes you don’t hear the same things …. sometimes ;u; !) )
Then I watched the clip and just seeing the choreography inspired me a lot !
So I watched it many times and learned the movements to recreate them with my little animals =) !
It was an awesome exercice and I shall try this more ! I added the song so it feels more alive now ^^
This song belongs to Béyonce “Single ladies”, or here, birdies !
