    Cool bird fee...

    Hi,

    It may be a mistake, but do the words bird & fee together mean anithing?

    It was something like "... the payment must be done on February 23rd bird fee..."

    The dictionaries give no answers.

    Perhaps it was a bird dog fee?

    Was this a written thing you saw or something you heard, Ieasy? If written, could you provide the actual quote and any extended context?

    I read it, but unfortunately I don't have the letter with me anymore. I'll try to get it and rewrite the whole passage.

    A bird dog fee is a referral fee in business.
    I've never heard of a bird fee....a small fee perhaps ?

    Without any context, my (wild) guess is that it's something to do with paying for shooting game birds; you might pay X per day, and an extra 'bird fee' per bird shot.
