While Betty Scott and I were doing the New River CBC, at Farmers Fish Camp Rd in alleghany county, we were saddened to see that all the abandoned fishing line hung up on the utility wires had snagged and killed a kingfisher. Neither of us could remember seeing this before and we wondered how common such an occurrence might be. Has anyone else noticed similar accidents before?
We were wondering whether doing the work to remove the old abandoned fishing line might be justified.
