Easter grass is no treat for the birds

There are better alternatives to plastic grass for Easter baskets. Photo by J.J. Meyer
     Plastic grass sold to line Easter baskets can be dangerous for wild birds and pets. Birds may snatch up remnants left on the lawn after Easter egg hunts for their nests. Then it can strangle young birds or get tangled on legs and wings. Dogs and cats may require surgery if they decide to eat it.
     So please choose other alternatives such as cotton batting, feathers, or leaves and twigs from your garden. Or simply line baskets with colorful tissue paper.  Thank you!

     Happy birding!
