This Top 10 List is intended to be a tongue-in-beak, birds-eye view of what they’re probably tweeting about this Christmas season. However it is a serious matter to wild birds trying to make it through the difficult weather conditions ahead.
Wild birds may not really be in a humorous mood as they look at what lies ahead for them this winter. So BirdFeedersPlus.com has developed a Top 10 List to draw attention to their plight. It’s intended to be a tongue-in-beak, bird’s- eye view of what they’re probably tweeting about this Christmas season. However it is a serious matter to wild birds trying to make it through the difficult weather conditions they’ll be facing. Humans can make a difference in improving their chances of survival by providing them with food & water.
TOP 10 Reasons to Care For Wild Birds this Winter –from a Birds’ eye view:
10. Have YOU ever tried bathing in the snow?
9. Spring is HOW far away?
8. WE should get some credit for being the FIRST ones to start the “tweeting”
7. It’s not like we’re asking for steak & potatoes – just seeds would be fine (plus some heated water)
6. We don’t have fur coats like our other outdoor companions
5. You think we LIKE those stupid unheated houses with one little hole & no windows?
4. We’re your feathered friends!
3. How would YOU like to go months without mating?
2. You think YOU hate cats!
1. It’s still politically correct & you’ll be a better person for caring about us.
Can you think of other reasons to add to the list? If so, you’re invited to submit them to us and we will add them to our list. Just go to birdfeedersplus.com, and click on “ Contact Us” to add your comments to the email form so that we can include them.
“It doesn’t take a bird brain to know that it’s going to be another tough winter of survival for our feathered friends. So they certainly can use our help” says Paul Juhnke, President of BirdFeedersPlus.com, a Northern (Milwaukee) based provider of birdfeeders plus everything else for enjoying wild birds nationwide.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pro-Life Conference Objects to “Cull the Herd” Mentality of the Culture of Death
Milwaukee, WI. October 27, 2011. The abortion issue is just the most visible aspect of a larger debate being carried out in American society according to the sponsors of a pro-life conference being held on the campus of Concordia University Wisconsin on November 12th, 2011.
An underlying premise of the conference is that what one believes about the nature of humanity will often drive where one stands on abortion and many other issues such as euthanasia, embryonic and stem cell research. Depending on the stance that broader society takes, either a ‘culture of life’ or a ‘culture of death’ will emerge, the sponsors contend.
Lutherans For Life of Wisconsin and Concordia University Wisconsin’s Bioethics Institute are co-sponsoring the conference.
LFL-WI president Anthony Horvath says, “What we call the ‘Culture of Death’ always has the same characteristics regardless of which era in history we see it. What does slavery in the 19th century, the Jews of the 20th century, and the unborn of the 21st century all have in common? In each case, one group of people decided that another group of people were not really humans. It was only a matter of time before someone decided it was time to ‘cull the herd.’”
The conference will challenge the notion that humans have the right to decide who is human and assert that this right is God and God’s alone.
One conference session will track the ‘culture of death’ and expose its roots in history and argue that its principles continue to bear fruit today in organizations such as Planned Parenthood. In another presentation, it will be shown how the principles that lead to a ‘culture of life’ are grounded in the Bible. CUW’s Bioethics Institute director, Dr. Kevin Voss, will tie it all together to show how the different perspectives inform issues normally considered separate and distinct from abortion, such as assisted suicide and human cloning. Wisconsin Right to Life’s Legislative Director, Susan Armacost, will participate in the panel discussion.
Horvath says, “Ideas have consequences. We must take the time to examine our ideas and beliefs and ‘connect the dots’ between them and real world issues, and that is what this conference is about.”
Concordia University Wisconsin is located just north of Milwaukee, in Mequon, WI. To register online and learn more about the conference visit www.lfl-wi.org
Anthony Horvath is available for interviews at 202-280-7971 or email@example.com.
