More than 20,000 birds have already died in the Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge (located on the Oregon-California border) as water levels reach dangerously low levels. The Refuge is widely considered the most important habitat for migratory waterfowl in the Lower 48, and yet the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation has failed to provide adequate water to support the millions of birds arriving for spring migration. With more than two million birds forced to bunch together in the remaining wetlands, an outbreak of avian cholera has caused the massive die-off.

The Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge is a national treasure. It was the nation's first waterfowl refuge when it was established in 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt. And its importance has never waned. Approximately 40 percent of the migratory waterfowl in the Pacific Flyway depend on this Refuge during spring and fall migrations. It hosts the largest concentration of wintering Bald Eagles south of Canada and harbors more than 80 species that are listed as sensitive, threatened or endangered.

Once again OBAMA’S Secretary of the Interior (aka Secretary of Death) Kenneth Salazar is behind it.

Obama’s Oil and Energy Whore Secretary of the Interior Kenneth Salazar – turning species into feces, so that those with cash can have even more$$$ and more$$$!

Like Obama, Salazar is disingenuous, uninspired and self interested in approaching the needs of the country.

Perhaps SalaCzar checked with HoldHerr first and they didn't see any of the birds on the B.O.-big-donor list.

Ask not for whom the whores whore [they will say it's for you, but their (in)actions show otherwise].
