...I cannot publicly state my comment....big lip service...any true biologist, would state the truth...but when one's "paycheck" comes from BLM.."oh, well, ..guess one's "soul" is being held hostage"
GLOBAL WARMING IS REAL, RIGHT NOW, NOT LATER AND IT IS KILLING AND EXTERMINATING THE MIGRATORY BIRDS AS WE READ THIS, EVERY MINUTE AND SECOND, IN REAL TIME!!!..how dare they "soft-soap" this CRITICAL REALITY!!"
Thankyou for posting this, Cal!!

I too am with Shelley..I hve lost all respect for the BLM..
But hopefully these kids will grow and either turn on them also or decide to get in there and turn the agency around.

Good points made. And when you educate a child, you educate their parents as well. Children are proud of what they learn and feel passionately about and usually tell their families all about it in great detail. Good job.

We've observed changes in migratory patters over the past few years. Our most recent observation was hearing bird calls after dusk and throughout the night. My husband didn't believe me until he heard it himself. When we talked about it yesterday at our Mother's Day get-together, my daughter reported having the same experiences at her house --so it's not a fluke. I think these poor creatures might be getting mixed signals brought on by warmer temperatures. I hope they're not affected adversely by whatever it is that's happening to them.
