I collect trivia. I'm a freakiing Cliff Clavin.

For instance: did you know that the increased use of anti-anxiety meds are having an effect on fish? the sewage treatments can't filter it so it goes back into the rivers. As a result, The fish are starting to become less wary of danger and become more likely to be eaten.

Fascinating! Useless!

I have about a thousand more just like it.

I like to feed and watch the birds here. It's always a big deal to see a species I haven't seen before.

I used to feed the birds religiously. Every night I'd fill the feeders so they'd be ready bright and early for the birds. I did attract many birds I had never seen before. I had seed for finches, different mix for cardinals and jays, put out oranges for Orioles, etc. But the biggest attractant seemed to be a steady supply of clean water.

Have fun. I know I enjoyed it and I would like to get back into it. When I cleaned out my garage I saw all kinds of feeders I used to set out. Some for perching birds, clinging birds, finches, ground feeding birds, etc. It was almost like a science.

I think its great that the poll is mostly "other." I'm also relieved to know that we don't have any cat hoarders.
