the birds

The canadian geese of the Anacostia River have been all over the news recently (washington post this morning) for the way they are really damaging the already struggling river ecosystem.
"It's like the relative who comes to stay at Christmas and just doesn't go home," said Jim Collier, a member of the Anacostia Watershed Citizens Advisory Committee.
Environmentalists are proposing the park service kill the birds, but public input is accepted Here until August 10.
