My family's farms are all just east of Alma the wild bird populations have vanished over the years there

We only do our own put and take hunts these days, if we stumble on a wild covey we are so excited to see it we wouldn't dare shoot any of them

I don't know if it's the predators, habitat, farm chemicals or all of the above but the wild birds are gone and it's heart breaking
