  1. What all these people shoulddo is get a copy of the Migratory Bird Act its on the net, this outlines what can be done during bird season which is now. They cannot cut, disturb any bird nest occupied or not as long as it is being used. They should call Fish & Game. PG&E does not selectivly cut and they cut way too often, and always during active birding time. The local Audubon should also be able to help. Check with the Sonoma Wildlife Rehab Center talke to their bird person believe her name is Veronica Bowers or they will know how to get ahold of her. PG&E’s statewide cutting practices whould be examined andoverhauled.
