Fellow Birders,

A 1000' Television tower is proposed for the Lower Florida Keys.  Literally miles of cable will be needed to support the structure.  This structure will have a considerable impact on migrating neotropical landbirds funneling through the Keys, especially during fall migration.  Over the long term this can have a tremendous impact on birding opportunities.  For further information regarding bird tower mortalities check out the above website.  To aire your disapproval of this proposal e-mail Monroe County Commissioners George Nugent [log in to unmask] and Nora Williams [log in to unmask]  and tell them that you oppose the proposed Cudjoe tower.  My apologes if anyone finds this post inappropriate.

-Chris
