Logging in city’s north end will lead to empty nests

To the Editor,

Hey birds, you can nest now; it’s April.

According to the City of Nanaimo, you can nest now even though there are few trees left in the north end. The city has been allowing frantic clearing in the area in spite of the nesting  activities of birds such as Anna’s Hummingbirds who built their nests in February and survived the extreme snowstorm. For a few days, Bewick’s Wrens have been carrying twigs around the fallen trees adjacent to the Oliver Woods Community Centre. There is a lot of other bird activity in the area of fallen and soon-to-be removed trees.
