May 6, 2013-Birds This Week and the Destruction of Habitat
Check out the video of the destruction of trees surrounding the lagoon behind the Museum of Science and Industry. Several trees have succumbed to the shredder. These were trees that were frequented by migrating and nesting birds. They provided habitat next to the lagoon for fish and other wildlife. The trees will be replaced with cherry trees to provide color (not habitat) in spring. Included is an example of the beauty that is in jeopardy on Wooded Island.
