When today's issue of the Minnesota Outdoor News arrived in the mailbox, Mr. Johnson immediately turned to the "Online Opinions" page to see if any results of this vote had been published yet and lo, and behold, they had. I scanned these items from the Outdoor News to share with you here.
I thank all of you, my "birding friends," who took the time to cast your vote on this issue. At least we got the attention of the folks at Outdoor News. You may remember also that this was only an opinion poll for the Outdoor News and the results would obviously have no bearing on the decision of the Minnesota DNR......as was evidenced by this article which subsequently appeared on page 6 of today's issue of the Outdoor News. (One small step forward for the Minnesota DNR and one giant leap backwards for bird conservation.)
