Dangers of Improperly Discarded Fishing Line by Amanda Sebrosky, WCAS Member and Founder Northeast Ohio Chimney Swift Conservation Society
National Audubon Society estimates that one million shorebirds die every year as a result of marine debris with over 300,000 of those deaths attributed to discarded fishing lines and hooks.
The Ohio Division of Wildlife is lifting its previous recommendation to stop feeding birds. However, caution and vigilance are always necessary to help prevent further spread of diseases at bird feeders.
November can truly be a month of extremes with lingering warm days as well as the first frosts and flurries of the pending winter. The colorful leaves of early autumn are replaced by naked trees stripped by the gales of November that can rock our world. But change is what keeps our natural world exciting.
Yes my friends, October is here in Cleveland and it's one of my favorite months. The Dog Days are disappearing and we can finally open our windows again to let some of that deliciously cool night air in! And speaking of night, take some time to step outdoors where it's quiet and listen...the sky is full of birds!
