They will probably use the same methods as all the tall buildings in the downtown area.

I like birds but not enough to spend thousands, millions or even dollars more on administrative, architectual, engineering, materials, and construction costs of my money to save birds.

Just another of hundreds of reasons not to build it. Call your elected senate and house representatives and tell them to halt the funding.

On behalf of our other friends the Flickers, Sandpipers, Barn Owls, Swallows, Martins and Sapsuckers would like to say thank you Minnesota. Now if we could just learn how to navigate those 40 story office buildings.

In my line of business, that is called requirements creep. I tell my customer, new requirement, more funding. Time for the DNR to pony up.
