I wanted to share this article from the Seattle Times:

http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/disbelief-over-state-plan-to-spray-neurotoxin-into-oyster-beds/

The article mentions a potential impact on ducks, but I would think spraying insecticides that are "highly toxic to aquatic invertebrates" would greatly impact the millions(?) of migrating shorebirds who are planning on eating these invertebrates as they make their way north to their breeding grounds? Spraying begins mid-may.
