SHORE BIRDS SHORELY NOT SHOREBIRDS

The vernal pond was filled by the flooding North Yamhill River last week…later the dog and I found shore birds along its shore.  Songbirds not shorebirds: robins, two Brewer’s Blackbirds and a shy Varied Thrush:IMG_5207 (2)IMG_5216 (2)vt-wenn_LI (2)vt-wenn3 (2)wenn pond (2)

WE ARE LIVING IN THE NEW DARK AGES

Not only is the political world full of lies, half-truths, propaganda, fostered conspiracy theories and internet trolling, but many issues we may have thought we had put behind us…still unsettled.  The Trump Regime just gave landowners and businesses big and small complete permission to kill any bird that gets in the way, as long as the bird dies during a pursuit of profit and bird killing is not the business being pursued.
Log a forest, burn a prairie, mine some minerals and let the trailings run free, fill a marsh to make a parking lot, use herbicides to get rid of pesky plants that finches might need.  All these are now legal acts despite the century-old Migratory Bird Treaty.  Damn those robins, I got business to do round here.
