Let's hear it for the birds of Cyprus

I came across this Bird Life Cyprus video made in 2011 on the rise of the trapping of songbirds and the apparent immunity of the trappers despite trapping being illegal.

    Jonathan Franzen wrote an interesting and powerful article on this topic in the New Yorker on 26 July 2010. He participated as an anti-trapping activist on Cyprus and elsewhere in the Mediterranean. The piece was republished in his collection of articles Farther Away in 2012. Franzen also discusses it in this podcast: http://www.newyorker.com/online/2010/07/26/100726on_audio_franzen
