Migratory Bird Treaty Act Faces Major Threat
Proposed changes to the Migratory Bird Treaty Act in the USA, one of the oldest wildlife conservation laws, threaten to undo safeguards that protect birds from the negative impacts of energy development, including oil and gas drilling and poorly placed wind energy facilities. The result could be millions of dead birds, with no consequences for the responsible companies. Millions of these birds spend their summers in Canada.
Neonicotinoids, commonly known as 'neonics,' are the most widely used insecticides in the world, and they're deadly to birds and other wildlife. Check out this site to learn more. Link

We will also review binoculars, field guides and smart phone apps that can enhance your birding experience. You can even use your newly developed skills to contribute to "Citizen Science".
