Bloody Skies

Lauren Hodapp at National Geographic sent me an interesting link about a piece they just published on their Daily News Blog, Bloody Skies: The Fight to Reduce Deadly Bird-Plane Collisions by Eric Uhifelder.  It's a great piece that connects well with our NJ30 banded Red-tail Hawk that was in Washington Square ealier this year.

I'm glad that our beloved hawks in Washington Square Park, are leading to a more general understanding of the risks raptors face in their daily lives.  Be it secondary poisonings due to rat poisons or collision fatalities. These issues need as much publicity as possible.  Thanks for the article Nat Geo!
