Bird lovers open up about death traps hidden all around us

https://tucson.com/news/local/bird-lovers-open-up-about-death-traps-hidden-all-around/article_82aea915-3fe5-597b-8ce5-611a3cef7e14.html




In winter, especially, birds seek open water such as the trout hatchery's retention pond. Tragically, open pits of wastewater and oil are often, mistakenly chosen by birds which is usually a lethal decision. The new MBTA bill would restore protections for wildlife against hazards like this and I urge you to do all you can to ensure the bill's passage. Thank you!
