Birds and jets share same turf

Washington Daily News (NC)
August 14, 2005

The East Coast of the United States, on the ground and in the air, has
become increasingly crowded with often competing interests compelled to
share turf.

One relationship, arguably, hasn't fared as well as others: birds and aircraft.

Increasing aircraft traffic and expanding bird populations -- bolstered
by successful conservation efforts -- have turned the friendly skies
into occasional combat zones for both military and civilian flights.

One particularly successful conservation effort was the establishment of
Pocosin Lakes Wildlife Refuge, a key stop on the Atlantic Flyway, the
Interstate Highway for migratory waterfowl.

However, like some of the creatures that use the refuge, the refuge
itself was recently put on an endangered list of its own.
