The Clark County Public Utility District has postponed the
attempt to wipe out the Yacolt Monk Parakeets. A bird rescue group has
put up a series of nest/traps and will attempt to capture the birds and
domesticate them before adopting them out as pets. I think this may be
the best solution as it takes them out of the "wilds" of Yacolt, removes
the potential for problems with the power supply and prevents the killing
of the birds. Hopefully some of the people of Yacolt will be among the
people who wish to adopt some of "their" birds. I thank all of the people
who contacted the P.U.D. or expressed their opinions and views on the
birds.
