READ BELOW ABOUT OTHER ISSUES FOR BIRDS
To my Anoka County, Minnesota friends,
See link below to yet another PentaChloroPhenol site cleanup. Just an FYI the EPA continues to approve and the use of this chemical even as we have had 3 massive issues in the last few months. And I am not expecting any changes to the EPA/ Administration position any time soon. Sad – as there are alternatives to this chemical. See http://www.PentaChloroPhenol.info for more info.

The North American Bird Banding Program
Bird banding is important for studying the movement, survival and behavior of birds. About 60 million birds representing hundreds of species have been banded in North America since 1904. About 4 million bands have been recovered and reported.
Data from banded birds are used in monitoring populations, setting hunting regulations, restoring endangered species, studying effects of environmental contaminants, and addressing such issues as Avian Influenza, bird hazards at airports, and crop depredations. Results from banding studies support national and international bird conservation programs such as Partners in Flight, the North American Waterfowl Management Plan, and Wetlands for the Americas.
The North American Bird Banding Program is under the general direction of the U.S. Geological Survey and the Canadian Wildlife Service. Cooperators include the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Mexico’s National Commission for the Knowledge and Use of Biodiversity and Secretary of the Environment and Natural Resources; other federal, state and provincial conservation agencies; universities; amateur ornithologists; bird observatories; nature centers; nongovernmental organizations such as Ducks Unlimited and the National Audubon Society; environmental consulting firms and other private sector businesses. However, the most important partner in this cooperative venture is you, the person who voluntarily reported a recovered band. Thank you for your help.

Man Changes Climate
Civilization Has Distinct Effect Upon Winter Temperature
The presence of large numbers of buildings in any situation will raise the temperature of the locality whilst the influence of the warmth arising from a large number of fires must not by any means be overlooked. Experiments conducted in London, Berlin, Paris serve to show that the average annual temperature in the cities is two or three degrees higher than in the surrounding country. At certain times of the year, there is often a greater difference still, and it is noticeable that in cities sudden changes are not felt to the same extent that they are in open country.
Taking England as a whole, there has been during the last two centuries an immense reduction in the amount of marsh land. Damp soil being always colder than dry , some changes may be expected place. It is proved fact that the temperatures in this than it was some centuries ago. Some old people supposed to be more sensitive to cold as they grow older continually affirm that the winter s are not so sever as they use to be. The old-fashioned winter often began in December, even November, but now it is rarely that any prolonged spell cold is experienced until the New Year. The writer speculated whether the draining of the boglands of the tundra’s in Siberia would not alter the climate of that desolate region.
It has been defiantly established has says that the presence of large numbers of trees in the tropical regions tends to reduce the temperatures. Belta of the forest lands to be largely dependent on the presence of trees. Cutting down virgin forest in America has resulted in long spells of drought. Deforestation having been proved to reduce the rainfall the question arises how far in this land of ours afforestation is altogether desirable. He concludes:
To sum up the whole matter it is impossible to deny that man and his works do influence climate to a greater or less extent the spread of civilization in a new land has a real effect on the annual tale of weather. The study of the subjects in itself its infancy.
