Murrelet Miscue
This image provided by the Klamath Siskiyou Wildlands Center made on July 25, 2013, shows Jim Rogers with the group Friends of the Elk River, standing next to a tree that was felled by the U.S. Forest Service. The Forest Service removed five trees at the Sunshine Bar Campground near Port Orford in Southwest Oregon. The old-growth trees are part of prime habitat for a protected bird called the marbled murrelet. The Forest Service removed them without first getting a permit from another federal agency, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. (AP Photo/Klamath Siskiyou Wildlands Center, Rich Nawa)
