Tweeters,

Last night the Clark county PUD did remove the five Monk Parakeet
nests in Yacolt but were only able to capture and euthanize three of the
estimated fifty parakeets. The next step in the plan is to have USDA
personnel shoot the remaining birds with air rifles. The Portland news
station is running a public opinion survey on the removal of the nests,
so far it is 53% against and 40 for the removal. If you would like to
voice your opinion the web address for the news station and the poll is:

Contact information for the Clark County PUD is 360-992-3000, the
person who has been their spokesperson is Lena Wittler.
