In today's Milford Orange Bulletin, Tues, Jan. 5, is a letter to the editor
on page 4.entitled "Birds killing trees on Charles Island".
It states that the trees on Charles Island are dying because of the herons
and egrets nesting there.  This is the citation which the author cites
 http://calag.ucanr.edu/Archive/?article=ca.v062n03p87

I know many of us bird Silver Sands State park and value Charles Island and
the nesting birds there. The letter writer states that once the trees are
gone, the herons and egrets won't nest there.
Any comments?
