Hunters hunt these birds for their beaks and feathers while some people also keep them in cages and make them live their whole life in cages away from the sky where they belong. 

We want as fast internet as possible and can not wait if it takes more than a second to install an application. And we go crazy if we do not have a very clear version of everything we see or if our movies or videos pause for a second. 

Yet, what we do not think about is how much the internet signals are victimizing these mini creatures. These birds are going less and less every day due to the upcoming technology and fast internet speed. 

It’s time that we stop thinking only about ourselves and start thinking about other creatures living on this planet sharing their homes with us. It’s high time for us to start thinking about these matters. Or the only creatures left on this planet will also go to the extent and we will be left with ourselves.

How is that done? I only ask that because I am having some issues with someone that uses that board and things have been troubling for over a month. I just would like some clarity. Thank you . I’ve had dead birds die Infront of me. Flocks of small black birds land Infront of me. Phone numbers that I call I call to people hang-up or don’t take my calls. Maybe it’s not anything but I’m concerned. This morning a big flock of little black birds landed Infront of me and then when I was writing this they flew into a tree where they couldn’t be seen and then when they were in the tree the birds were chirping like crazy. I hope you can maybe she’d some light on what is going on. Thank you for your time and effort.
