NIMBY's Newest Track - "But Whadddabout Tha Birds???"

To the writer's credit not actually talking ant-development - - just to mitigate the clear/reflective glass fooling the fly rodents. But I'm sure the NIMBY's will latch onto what they want from this.

"The proliferation of glassy towers is making Boston a more dangerous place for birds, according to a prominent environmental group, and it wants the city and developers to do something about it.

Mass Audubon is calling attention to the issue — long a concern of urban bird advocates — as the owners of One Post Office Square push ahead with plans to replace the 41-story tower’s concrete facade with glass panels. The group worries the $250 million project could be a deadly magnet for birds that mistake its reflective surface for open sky........"
