Delayed harvest saves birds
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- California farmers are credited with preserving a large population of a rare bird species.
Central Valley farmers saved about 60,000 protected tri-colored black birds this spring, by delaying their harvests of wheat and other crops. Delaying the harvest saved about 20-percent of the birds global population.
Since they lost the feed, the federal government has spent $100-thousand to help farmers replace it.
