Some Sound News

Some people who have boats in Greenwich don't like ospreys nesting near them. I would have liked this story better if it had included some reaction from Audubon Greenwich or Audubon Connecticut.

Fresh from the winning referendum on whether Stratford should sell Long Beach West to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the city (or is it a town?) signed a deal with the Trust for Public Land to serve as intermediary. This story doesn't say how much TPL will make on the deal though.

And some people in Connecticut want to keep the lobster v-notch program going, here and here.

I was slightly amused about the guts-chunking, pooping osprey. Gee, we have maybe 50 or 100 down here in our county and I've never seen them make big messes except when a big truck hits one on the bridge! It's the loons, cormorants, and seagulls that'll get ya and do a nice refinishing job on your boat.

Then I'm reminded of a house in West Austin that had a roost of maybe 40 buzzards - huge, black, poopy ones. It turns out that the spot where the McMansion was built was their historical roosting area, located on a bluff with the some old dead, trees. Shouldn't have cut down those trees, Bubba!

Did the osprey file the proper residency forms at the town hall?

I think they have "squatter's rights," my friend!

Ahem ... sorry!
