Last summer, there was an incident reported on CT Birds aboutdangerous kite string found by birders in the marsh at HammonassettState Park.  I'm wondering if there has been any follow-up by DEEP toprevent a repeat of this practice in CT. Below is a link to an article reporting the impact of this "sport" and traditionupon wildlife in India.  We're having a discussion about this on another listserve for wildlife rehabilitators. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jan/14/uttarayan-bird-fatalities-kite-festival -india-makar-sankranti-january-14 Meredith SampsonOld Greenwich
