Please help save wild birds by learning from my mistakes and research
   When I started my first garden, I am sad to say that I bought pesticides when I saw bugs on my plants, but after reading a book about organic gardening, I now understand more about maintaining nature's balance.  I love putting up nestboxes and watching the birds come collect grasshoppers to feed to their babies.  I feel good knowing the birds are getting a pesticide-free meal and that I am no longer contaminating their water supplies by using pesticides that would have been carried by storm runoff to the lake near my house.  40% of U.S. streams and lakes cannot even support fishing and swimming (Source: EPA web site), yet birds and wildlife must eat, drink, and swim in these streams and lakes daily.  Now I plant only native plants to my region, which stay healthier and do not require water or chemicals.  I buy organic foods at the grocery store to save wildlife killed by pesticides used in farming. 

    Last year, prompted by concern about the spread of West Nile virus, New York State asked counties to report dead birds to its wildlife pathology laboratory.  After receiving more than 80,000 birds, Dr. Ward Stone discovered that although the virus was a factor in some of the deaths, the leading cause was pesticide poisoning.  Common lawn care chemicals were among the most common toxins (excerpt from National Audubon Society).  Some pesticides are much more toxic to birds than to other speciesódiazinon is 100 times more acutely toxic to birds than mammals, for example.  Granular forms of lawn pesticides are most dangerous to birds, and ingestion of even one granule (which they mistake for food) can kill a small bird.  Most often the bird retreats to a sheltered area to die or is weakened enough to be eaten by predators which then also suffer from the pesticides in the small bird's body.

The public must decide whether it wishes to continue on the present road, and it can do so only when in full possession of the facts. - Rachel Carson
