Murrelet Miscue
FILE - This undated file photo shows an endangered marbled murrelet. 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. The Forest Service says it removed the trees because they were a hazard to campers. (AP Photo/Esther Burkett)
