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.

Saving birds from Audubon Society?

By Bill Gregware 

"Climate change is the single greatest threat to both birds and people," says David Yarnold, CEO/President of the Audubon Society, adding, "We need to deploy renewable energy resources aggressively ... if we are to meet the challenge of our lifetime."

This is nothing new; the society has been an outspoken advocate for a decade or more of renewable energy of any type, without consideration for costs or benefits. The true believers have been led by the pied pipers of renewables down a path of unintended consequences that have resulted in the death of billions of birds. Apparently, they believe the bird deaths are not in vain, because the results justify the means. By sacrificing billions of birds now, we are saving many more (and the entire human species as well) in the long run.

The three main types of renewable energy that have been pushed so hard by various political administrations and Audubon are biofuels, wind and solar.
