At the risk of getting kicked off Carolinabirds, please take action and complain to your elected representatives. This is one of the most appalling things yet from this administration. For what it is worth, I just sent this to Sens. Graham and Scott:
“You really need to act if the Republicans want to have any environmental/stewardship legacy. The attack by Dept. of Interior on the Migratory Bird Treaty Act today is simply appalling. You cannot keep selling out to business interests. How many of your constituents feed birds and have no idea about the importance of the MBTA?”
SC is at ground zero in these attacks. Check out Congressman Jeff Duncan’s position on the MBTA. It is my understanding that a lot of this is from kowtowing to the Koch brothers with their Western wind farms. Keep in mind that SC birds are at risk from offshore wind farms and SC’s location relative to migration routes. For you listers, there may be little to list down the road.
