Neonicotinoids kill birds

New research shows that birds may be declining due to the same pesticides that are killing bees, butterflies, and other insects. Neonicotinoids are found in many lawn and garden products (here’s a helpful list from The Xerces Society: http://bit.ly/1qcC7VS). You can do your part by eliminating the use of pesticides on your property, and spread the word by talking with your neighbors. You can read the full study, published in Nature, here: http://bit.ly/1juCJTQ.
