Literature Cited ABSTRACT Predation by house cats Felis catus is one of the largest human-related sources of mortality for wild birds in the United States and elsewhere, and has been implicated in extinctions and population declines of several species. However, relatively little is known about this topic in Canada. The objectives of this study were to provide plausible estimates for the number of birds killed by house cats in Canada, identify information that would help improve those estimates, and identify species potentially vulnerable to population impacts.
Decorate it with stickers. These holes are where the birdseed comes out. Drill two small holes in the top of the can just below the edge of the plastic lid on opposite sides. These will be used to hang the bird feeder. Drill a hole through the small plate and the bottom of the can.
The drill bit should match the size of your bolt. Match up the small plate with the hole in the bottom of the can and stick the 2-inch bolt through the hole in the paper plate and the hole in the bottom of the can.
Screw on the nut from the inside of the can. You may have to find someone with small hands to do this for you. Remove the lid from the can and place it upside down on the middle of the big paper plate. Drill a hole through the middle of the plastic lid and the plate. Stick the 1-inch bolt through the plate and then the lid and screw on the nut.
Drill two holes on opposite sides off the lid in the plate. Place the lid with the plate on the can. Now bring both ends of the string up through the holes you punched in the plastic plate.
Tie the string ends together at the top. To fill the bird feeder just pull off the lid and let it dangle to the side. The sunflower bird feeder to the right was made using the same technique, except that a brown plastic bowl was used for the top and yellow fun foam petal shapes were glued to the bowl to make the flower head.

Make a bell red bird craft to go along with this card. Go to the Christmas Craft Page 2 for directions: Turn the large paper plate over and fold down one edge towards you to make the wing. Cut a slit at one end of the fold so that the end of the wing stands out slightly. To make the head roll the snack-sized plate into a cone shape overlapping the edges slightly.Research Paper, part of a special feature on Quantifying Human-related Mortality of Birds in Canada Estimated Number of Birds Killed by House Cats (Felis catus) in CanadaEstimation du nombre d’oiseaux tués par les chats domestiques (Felis catus) au .
A look at cichlid fish in Lake Victoria. This is the first in what I hope to be a series of postings. In the series I hope to accomplish two things, establish that evolution is an active branch of mainstream science and that there is indeed an overwhelming amount of evidence in favor of the idea of evolution.
