Guidelines For Minimizing Killing Birds At Oil Field Waste Pits

This is a fascinating video put out by US Fish and Wildlife for oil and gas facility managers and staff. It’s to advise ways to reduce bird and other wildlife mortality through “best management practices.” There is no implication that if managers choose not to follow these guidelines that they will be prosecuted via the Migratory Bird Treaty.  That may be a conscious choice by the video makers to make this seem helpful rather than “the law will come down on you hard.”

Not that birders can access any of these sites, wouldn’t it be interesting to have someone monitoring them?
