Although I agree with John and was troubled when I read the article he references in his letter I would also add that if we have lost 3 billion birds over the last 50 years (under our watch with the Migratory Bird Treaty Act being enforced aggressively) then instead of looking for villains perhaps all of US have to redouble our efforts to change our life styles, lobby our legislators, support conservation efforts, etc, etc if we want to preserve the diversity of bird life for not only our grandchildren but even our grandchildren’s grandchildren.
