Ok, am I the only person on the planet who hates this? You're walking thru the indoor shopping mall, and you can see the birds that got inside during construction or whatever flying around and chirping in the high light fixtures.

In the mall by me (Fair Oaks), we were eating at the Corner Bakery, and I could see the birds swooping into the eating area, and landing on the wall behind the counter. Then hoping down onto the ground behind the counter to forage.

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that a major health code violation, not just the birds in the restaurant, but just being inside the mall in general?

I see them in Home Depot and Costco too, all the time.

So, like, what is the mall supposed to do about the half dozen sparrows in the 20-acre mall?

I see them in my Walmart too. They fly in through the garden center and crap all over the place.

The workers who don't wash their hands then prepare your food are probably a bigger health concern.

And there are plenty of scumbags in malls that are more of a nuisance than birds.

But then, I might not be what you'd call a 'people person'.

Bird in building = instant failure!

[hi-jack] I had one in my showroom one Sunday morning. I have 6 6X8 windows in the front, I opened the front door and the bird took off wide open into one of those windows. It knocked itself flat ass out cold. I picked it up assuming it was dead, tossed it outside, and a few minutes later it was gone.
Every time I think about that bird flying into that window.....I LMAO.[hi-jack]

I've seen it quite a few times.

One mall has an indoor water fountain (thing shoots a good 20' in the air).

There was a flock of about a dozen Starlings doing dive bomb runs through the water.
The crowd seemed to enjoy watching the birds.


Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that a major health code violation, not just the birds in the restaurant, but just being inside the mall in general?


What about restraunts that have outdoor seating?

Hell, I always throw the birds a few leftovers or pieces of food.

The trusting ones will sit on the edge of the table waiting for a few morsels.

Eating outside, no problem, hell I throw a few frenchfries myself from time to time.

But indoors? That's wrong man. I also dont want my hair frosted for free.

We had a pigeon get into a walmart I used to work at. I tracked the sucker down and caught him with a lucky throw of a fishing net.
