Drivers exploit birds’ trust

When driving along Marine Drive on West Beach, some of the people are either blind, on their cellphones or just don’t care.

I watched as a driver ran right over a young seagull last week.

The young birds have not yet learned to get off the road when cars are coming. They are trusting and have no fears of humans or cars.

I see these young birds every day and enjoy their company. It made me sick to watch the killing of this baby take place about 10 feet away from me.

I see drivers actually speed up when gulls and crows are on the road. These birds are not garbage on the street, they are members of a caring family and live and stay together just as a human family.
