“Oakland Chainsaw Massacre”

 

Quote:
OAKLAND, Calif. — It started as a well-intentioned attempt by the United States Postal Service here to rid its trucks of bird droppings: A tree trimmer was hired to prune the lush ficus trees that grow next to the post office’s parking lot, not far from City Hall. But in the course of the job, five baby black-crowned night herons fell from their nests and were injured. 

 

Quote:
One Saturday last month, Mr. Pulido and his crew were cutting branches when Cat Callaway, a landscaper who lives in the neighborhood, spotted a cherry picker, a wood chipper and newborn herons on the ground. Distraught and “animated,” Ms. Callaway said, she yelled for the workers to stop, saying, “Don’t you know there are birds in there?” She recorded the events — “It worked for the protest movements in the Middle East,” she said — and then alerted wildlife organizations and called the police’s nonemergency number. 

 

Quote:

 The tree trimmer, Ernesto Pulido, 26, is staring at a possible federal charge of violating the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. “I’m not a gangster,” said a contrite Mr. Pulido, who has visited the bird shelter where the victims are recuperating and voluntarily paid $2,500 for their medical care. “I’m just a guy who’s making a living day to day.”

 

Quote:
When Lisa Owens Viani, a wildlife conservationist, arrived, adult herons were circling the trees and “screaming in distress,” she said ...  the herons were given “fluids to stabilize them” and had blood work done “to check for stress levels,” ... the birds are expected to make a full recovery.

 

Quote:
 Cindy Margulis, executive director of the Golden Gate Audubon Society, said that next year, when the herons return, she would like to station docents near the trees and put hay on the ground to catch droppings and chicks. (Chicks “have a tendency to push siblings out of nests,” Mr. Harmon of International Bird Rescue said.)

 

Quote:
 Darin Lounds, executive director of the Housing Consortium of the East Bay, which provides housing for homeless people in Oakland and nearby communities, said the support for the birds was “great,” but added, “We need to have a similar response to the plight of our homeless neighbors.”
