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.

Medicine Hat, oil company want to quash bird protection order

MEDICINE HAT, Alta. -- A southern Alberta city and an oil and gas company are asking the courts to quash a federal emergency order that protects the sage grouse.

The City of Medicine Hat and LGX Oil & Gas Inc. filed an application Friday in Federal Court seeking a judicial review of the order.

The application asks the court to quash, alter or suspend the order for six months so the federal environment minister can consult with them.
