Helen McLaughlin replied to BNB Host's discussion Fund Raising to Offset Increases
"You are right Gail.    I was basing my reply on the comment that it would be $1. per member (1600 members) per year to maintain BNB. However if 1600 members each donated $1.oo through gofundme it would not be sufficent.  ($1.oo - 7.9%…"

"I am willing to help fund the site as it is a very valuable resource for all things nature.  I would however prefer to give the donation by mail or in person, if that would be OK.  My understanding (problem) with the gofundme site is that…"

Paul & Kitty Martin replied to Helen McLaughlin's discussion avian parasite trichomoniasis
"part of the difficulting with waiting to see if you have an infected bird is that we don't watch our feeders every minute of the day.  But I guess it comes down to the fact of why do you feed the birds."

Paul & Kitty Martin replied to Helen McLaughlin's discussion avian parasite trichomoniasis
"so therefore, by feeding the birds you think it saved them.  Parasites, disease are part of life, in the natural world the weak die or are eaten.  It's like the deer , if they had the natural predators in good numbers , the deer would…"

Don Cafferty replied to Helen McLaughlin's discussion avian parasite trichomoniasis
"Re "... feeding birds in the summer months ups the chance of disease ...", the irony of the situation is that were it not for people feeding the finches the problem might not have been identified as readily if people were not feeding…"

Joanne Savage replied to Helen McLaughlin's discussion avian parasite trichomoniasis
"I feed birds all year around and have seen only 2 ill birds in over 35 + years..... not every illness is related to the one mentioned in the Moncton Nature Line. Feeding year round develops 'feeder loyalty'."

Paul & Kitty Martin replied to Helen McLaughlin's discussion avian parasite trichomoniasis
"question; if you had children in a school and the school had reports that the water in the school might infect the child with a disease, do you just wait it out or do you change the water?   If we decide to interact with the wild around us we…"
