I found the Feb. 17 issue of the Enterprise both informative and distressing. Both the letters and editorial were very passionate about the efforts of Steve Pucillo and the volunteer community. I am not sure if any bureaucratic birdbrain was behind the efforts to remove the birdhouses. Did these officials find themselves up a tree and this was the only solution? It brings to mind the saying “a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.” The volunteers, with no expense to the community, created something beautiful, appreciated, and natural. That should have been sufficient to keep the tiny structures in place and, in fact, commend the volunteers’ efforts. Maybe it’s time for the volunteers and the bureaucrats to nestle together and brainstorm a better solution that restores the birdhouses along the trail.
