SOS: Save Our Shorebirds

handel sends along this urgent message to all anglers: “please be careful with your  discarded fishing line as it presents a life-threatening hazard to waterfowl."  The filament’s shiny appearance will attract birds who can easily become tangled in the wire.  This week, while visiting Lindo Lake in San Diego she spotted a blue heron whose life is in jeopardy thanks to the carelessness of area fishermen.

The video below offers good advice on proper disposal of fishing line.  In the meantime, we are praying for the poor bird, whom park rangers are trying to capture.
