I hate fireworks
I was indifferent to them until the cats came to live with me and I saw how frightened they were of them. Now that the cats are gone, I've come to think of the blue jays as my pets and I worry about their reaction to tonight's/tomorrow's fireworks. Remember the stories in the news about the mysterious bird deaths? It's thought that loud noises/explosions were the cause. For those interested, here's something on the subject from Audubon magazine .... Do Fireworks Cause Bird Deaths? What to Do on the Fourth of July.
