Shitting In Our Nest: Dead Bald Eagles Update

We almost killed them off with DDT.  Have no fear, we're persistent.  We will eliminate them and lots of other birds.  When will we finally off our own species?  Since greed knows no bounds, I suggest it will be sooner than we think.  The eagle killer lives on hydrilla.  Hydrilla?  Yep, it grows all over the place ever since greedy Florida capitalists introduced it--

Hydrilla is naturalised and invasive in the United States following release in the 1950s and 1960s from aquariums into waterways in Florida, due to the aquarium trade. It is now established in Canada and the southeast from Connecticut to Texas, and also in California. By the 1990s control and management were costing millions of dollars each year.

Bald eagles are starting to flourish again — but hold the confetti
