This might be a bit of a rant, I grew up across the street from Washington park. At one time it had more trees, elm trees, there were always Oriole nests. Then Dutch elm dieses. There were also long needle pines. They never replaced any of these trees. Loss of the tree line. When they expanded the cemetery they did not replant the trees. Loss of the tree line. When they did Hero's park again they cut down all the trees and did not replant any trees. I have never seen song birds at the lake. Loss of the tree line. This is one aspect of decline in the bird population but in my opinion a very important one. Loss of the tree line where birds can shelter, find food, nest and be able to move on is vital to their survival.
