I got a box of corn flakes and crushed the up, putting them in the bird feeder that I normally put sunflower seeds in. Yes, it's only been 24 hours, but can I expect the feathered friends to be as big a pig with the cornflakes as they are with the seeds? Am I the only one silly enough to try this? Help me out if you will.

It's against our town's by-laws to feed wild birds but I am a scofflaw.

I'm not referring to hanging bird feeders, but I mean throwing scraps into the park across the street.

I love crows. I adore them. I'd have a pet crow if I could, if I didn't have four pet birds of my own.

Those gluttons, along with their cousins, the seagulls, will eat anything.

I throw all our scraps out for them, fat, bones, pizza crusts, you name it. The crows and gulls will demolish them all.

It's recycling at its best!
