Birds: Coming Soon to a Milk Carton Near You

Migrating geese Birds have had a rough time of it lately, and as the birding community responds to the BP oil disaster and other climate-change-related bird issues, at least one company is helping to raise awareness about avian issues. This summer, Stonyfield's milk cartons will be decorated with bird photographs and facts about global warming's impact on migration and feeding habits. The organic yogurt maker will also support the Audubon Adventures school program, which teaches young people about issues affecting our feathered friends. The program even provides instructions for turning used milk cartons into bird feeders.

If you want to do more to help, you can participate in annual bird counts, buy bird-friendly coffee, plant a bird-friendly garden, or, if you're in the Gulf region, report oil-coated birds.
