Really outrageous....Snowy Owls, Eagles, what next!? I am not sure why  
there isn't more public outrage....there seems to be a nauseating  
amount of public outcry from all the northeastern states Listservs  
when a photographer (supposedly) walks a few centimeters too close to  
a Snowy Owl! But nothing when Bald and Golden Eagles are now going to  
be permitted (with 30 year permits) to be slaughtered in the name of  
windfarms! It took so many years to bring the Eagles back, for what?  
Logan used to use trained Falconers with Golden Eagles to drive the  
Snowy Owls off the airport....not sure if they still do, but shooting  
them??

Just noted at least 60 Americans robins with more coming in just a few minutes 
ago on our driveway here off South St in Washington, CT. The robins appear to be 
drinking water from?the melting ice on our driveway so looks like the temp is 
getting over freezing here. We woke to an Iceland?this AM at 900? feet in 
elevation here. Wonder if I will get this number of robins here on the Christmas 
Bird Count here on Saturday?

To CTBirds- Aren't there any wildlife organizations concerned about this that 
can be contacted instead of using a party-faithful radical political blog?

Here is a link to a National Audubon Society petition which is against
allowing wind farms to operate for the next 30 years without having to face
any prosecution for killing any eagles. If you can sign this, the names all
go to Secretary of The Interior, Sally Jewell.
https://secure3.convio.net/nasaud/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=1549

Sally Jewell started out as a petroleum engineer for one of the big oil
companies and then worked for years as a commercial banker, where she
worked with energy companies. . She followed that with a stint as the CEO
of REI- the outdoor recreational products company. She is another Obama
appointee.

Done!  Thanks, Charlie.  I know the Bald Eagle recovery has caused problems
for other native species (Great Cormorants and Puffins in Maine, per Steve
Kress) but this is ridiculous.  What about the technology that has
vane-less wind collectors such as that crazy fan I see advertised on TV?
Is there anything to that?  There has to be a better way to do this than
the wholesale slaughter of birds.

There was an adult BALD EAGLE in Bruce Park, Greenwich today, perched in trees 
in the area of the white gazebo.  An area resident said he has seen it over the 
last 3 days, in various trees in that area.  It gave excellent views, flying 
twice while I watched it over a 20 minute period but returning to nearby trees.
