"Parks Canada has stated that cormorants are native to Middle Island and that they're a Carolinian species. They just don't want to have a vibrant native colonial nesting colony there and have spun a web of nonsense in an attempt to justify killing the birds. It is disappointing that two researchers would join Parks Canada in misrepresenting the facts," writes Barry Kent MacKay, Canadian Senior Program Associate for Born Free USA united with API and a birder of no small reputation. Barry authored the recent Action Alert on protecting Double-crested Cormorants on Middle Island in Point Pelee National Park.
