MSNBC: No Border Wall! Birds And Bats May Not Be Able To Fly Over It!

Well, "some" birds and bats, it was said, but I don't believe it.
I've watched bats by a lake in Florida and saw a horde fly out of Carlsbad Caverns as a daily evening twilight event.

Bats can fly over anything they want. So can birds.
The wall won't stop killer bees either.
Can chickens and turkeys cross? Who cares?
Methinks wolves and any jaguars separated by the border wall will be just be fine too.
Astounding is the dawning of the day jackrabbit road kill at the Big Bend Park in Texas.
All the road kill is gone by noon. Yum! Yum!
Pollination will continue to pollinate.
The only environmental thing that needs to come to an end is the econazi EPA.

    What idiots! This rates right in there with the Congressman who felt an island would tip over if too many troops were at one end! I know the journalist IQ is a mere 109, but did they take no science classes, never see a bat or a bird? The bats in our bat house soar. It is amazing to watch them freefall from their house on our on our gable end, then fly and rise high over the mature sprruce trees. How do these folks think they are able to migrate if they can't fly high.
    What they don't care about are the precious windmills, which actually do kill the bats and bids, but, oh, that is their precious faux global arming sacred cow! Another incidence of NSNBC bias!

      Me dino is always learning something in the Gulch. I have never heard of a bat house.
      Cool! I like bats~especially the kind that gobble down incredible amounts of mosquitoes.

        I grew up in New Mexico, where people knew of the Carlsbad Caverns and their bats, as good things. When we moved to a suburban subdivision in the Midwest, we had too many mosquitoes. I went online to the Bat Conservancy to learn about bat houses, which way they should face, that they like cedar but not stain, how high they have to be. We got nothing the first yer, but from ten on, our mulit-bat house has been occupied every year. The mosquito issue disappeared, and we have a creek! They eat thousands of them. It is so interesting to watch then free fall from their house above the deck eave and then fly out and up again at dusk.

    I've had a similar experience. Taking a raft trip down through the Grand Canyon watching bats fly out of a cave a couple thousand feet overhead.The only bird I can think of that might be stymied by a fence would be an ostrich of which there is a definite dearth in that area.

    Until the Wall is up they should put the Drones on patrolling the boarder. Declare a 1 mile "No Go" zone and KILL violators.

    There would be wailing and gnashing of teeth. But after the 1st or 2nd day you can bet that the traffic would STOP!

    I admit I've always been fascinated about the jaguar story. They do make their way up over the border. Very shy creatures, and I think only seen on trail cameras...
