In case you missed it…
Are you following @MrSandHillCrane on Twitter?
When the Brown Administration realigned its proposed peripheral tunnels route to pass through the Staten Island refuge of the Sandhill Cranes, one of the cranes immediately launched a twitter feed evaluating the massive tunneling project from his unique perspective. The Sandhill Cranes are due back in the Delta shortly. Don’t miss these updates. Below are those sent to date.
“My new BFF Huey Johnson: The idea a politician can say we’re going to run our tunnels thru Staten Is. is unbelievable http://bit.ly/15wxpbD
“Almost to the Delta! A lil birdie told me Rep. Doris Matsui told @JerryBrownGov U.S. has no $$$ to destroy my refuge. http://1.usa.gov/17q4PTk
“BDCP must improve cranes’ conditions & contribute to Delta crane population recovery. How do years of pile driving & lubricated muck help me?
“I spend the night in standing water that deters coyotes & other predators. Where do I stand to avoid predation by @JerryBrownGov’s tunnels?
“Flying to Delta 4 roosting & foraging. Wonder how my friends @Lodi Sandhill Crane Assoc. feel about @JerryBrownGov plan to muck my refuge?
“I hope I can count on Phil Isenberg to protect the Isenberg Crane Reserve. If @JerryBrownGov builds H2O tunnels, will b ‘Craneless Reserve.’”
