Migratory birds get a helping hand

HoustonChronicle.com - Tompkins: Reform act a boost to migratory birds: "You have to figure wildlife-related federal legislation supported by a coalition including the National Audubon Society, The Nature Conservancy and the National Rifle Association has a pretty broad base of support."

Opposed only by animal-rights activists, this reform aims to eliminate non-native, invasive and destructive species in an area. Particularly mute swans in New England. Like most problem species, they are destroying the habitat for native species.
