A village, indeed!  This has been a noteworthy example of the birding community in action.  Discovery, communication, reaction, action.  And then, the publicity--such a positive depiction of birders.  The good discussion and outcome with property management is another positive aspect.

I hope someone (Maureen?) will prepare a short article and a photo or two for ASM's Bluebird quarterly so the story will be in the state organization's record.

Bodacious efforts!!

It took a village.  Rad Widmer was the original birder that discovered the tree cutters, joined by other St Louis Audubon members Lisa Saffell, Maureen Thomas-Murphy, Miguel Acosta, and Jennifer Holder.  Mitch Leachman of SLAS worked with the management company, MDC, and Fish & Wildlife.  Bryan Prather of the Wild Bird Store in Warson Woods took the Heron chicks to Wild Bird Rehabilitation on Midland in Overland. Joe Hoffman, the director of Wild Bird Rehab, is managing the attempt to return them to their parents.  Lisa and other St Louis birders will be surveying the trees in that area tomorrow morning, Sunday, at 8 am.  Hope I mentioned everyone.
