Welcome to Animal | Vegetable | Mineral

I never cease to be awed by the splendor of the natural world, by the forces that shape the earth, and by the diversity and ingenuity of the life that populates it.

Animal | Vegetable | Mineral is a group where those who share this fascination can discuss the Earth and animal sciences of geology, volcanology, seismology, ecology, ethology, primatology, entymology—basically all the –ologies of the natural world. 
 

For general science, chemistry, genetics, or evolution, please post in the Science! group. For posts on animal rights and welfare, please post in Animal Care. For cosmology, please post in The Daily Cosmos. For green living, sustainability, and environmental activism, please post in the Green Atheists group.

Interesting video of the bird Stephen. Is that a Finch?

Some may still believe the myth that a baby bird can't be put back into a nest if it falls to the ground while learning to fly.  

That's false.

If a cat gets a bird but doesn't harm it too much the saliva of the cat which contains bacteria is usually fatal.  Antibiotics are required or while the bird preens it will become ill.

From the Field: Wild Birds and Pet Cats

The Ottawa Valley Wild Bird Care Centre is a registered charity that cares for over 2500 sick, injured, or orphaned wild birds annually, until they can be released back into the wild...

...A bird that is brought to the Centre as a result of an encounter with a cat and survives has to remain in care for at the very least a week, in order to receive a full round of antibiotics. Broken bones need at least three weeks to heal and those birds that have come in with feathers ripped out are likely to stay at least one month before they are able to be released.— Patty McLaughlin, Education Co-ordinator, www.wildbirdcarecentre.org
