As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

269 million birds are killed across Canada each year due to human-related activities: Study

A new study published today reveals that 269 million birds are killed every year across Canada as a direct result of human-related activities.

Nature conservation groups across the country, in collaboration with the federal government, are calling on both individuals and governments to do something about this issue before it is too late.

“We are deeply troubled by the disquieting research published today on the number of birds killed every year in Canada due to human-related activities,” said Ian Davidson, Executive Director of Nature Canada. “Fortunately, there are concrete and sensible ways that people and governments can prevent the needless death of birds, especially now during the migratory season.”
