Well, Patrick, 

I found Shawn's post about the trees.  It was within a post with a subject
line "Uproars".  I've been automatically deleting these posts and therefore
did not read Shawn's comment.

Looks as if some nice nesting cavities were lost.   I can understand why
some of the park personnel chose to eliminate these trees as the park is
responsible if someone gets hurt from a falling limb.   I was in the park a
few years ago when a massive limb came out of one tree.   It would have
killed anyone who was underneath it.   The park is really caught between a
rock and a hard place on this one considering the desires of the birding
community and the eagerness of injury lawyers to file suit.
