A World without Birds

I don’t take rules too exactly.  But sometimes that may cost lives, in this instance the lives of robins.  Each summer the gardeners spread grub control on the grass, a pesticide that has some detrimental effect on the birds’ diet.  I have spoken out against this custom; from personal experience I’ve found grubs a minor lawn threat.  But I haven’t been very insistent.

Birds are dying out.  In North America, they have decreased by several billion in about seven years.  Are we entering end times?  I’d love that, but I’d hate to see a world without birds.

We are the stewards of Creation, and I don’t want to be irresponsible.  Can’t a garderner do without grub control?
