Easter grass kills birds

      Plastic grass sold for Easter baskets can be dangerous for wild birds and pets. Birds may pick up remnants left on the lawn after Easter egg hunts for their nests.  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. 
     Tweet this!
     Happy birding!
