An Unrecognized Danger

This time of year we use tarps to prepare for winter.  Eventually, tarps get tears, and those rips produce strings.  Sadly the strings are deadly to birds.  They get caught up in the strings and can’t fly.  Sometimes they use the strings for nests, which is deadly to babies.  Birds don’t recognize the danger of frayed tarps, and neither did I until I found birds which had died because of those deadly strings.

If you have stringy tarps, please do not use them where birds may access the strings.

Thanks for caring about the critters,
