I am writing in support of the Environmental Action Committee of West Marin (EAC), Point Blue Conservation Science, and Audubon Canyon Ranch's recommendation for a bird nesting protection ordinance.
Marin County is located along the Pacific Flyway, where over 54 percent of all North American birds have been sighted and recorded. Birds are relatively easy to observe and are indicators of habitat quality - think canary in the coal mine, and I am very concerned with vegetation management practices by Marin County that threaten bird habitats.
I believe that Marin County should adopt an ordinance to protect migrating birds, nests, eggs and young. This is investment in our economy, recreational opportunities, and for future generations.
Thank you very much for taking the time to consider this important issue. I look forward to following the progress of a bird nesting protection ordinance in Marin County.
