The New York City Department of Parks & Recreation has forwarded your email regarding netting at the Delacorte Theater roof.


There have been no birds separated from their young. The netting in question was installed in late February to replace older netting that was put up last season. Last season's netting was too thin and did not successfully prevent pigeons or sparrows from roosting on the theater rafters. This roosting creates unsanitary conditions under the loggia.


In an effort to prevent nesting in this location this year, a denser fabric was put up well before nesting activity took place. The new netting has prevented pigeons from roosting in the rafters but some sparrows were able to get into small openings that remained where the netting was attached to the wood.


We have identified locations where sparrows have made nests inside the netting. Delacorte staff has been instructed not to alter any of the openings created by the sparrows to ensure that the mothers can get to the nests and care for their young.


The site will be inspected on a daily basis by Delacorte and Central Park Conservancy personnel to ensure the safety of the sparrows and their nests.


Sincerely,


Douglas Blonsky
President, Central Park Conservancy
and Central Park Administrator

Dear Karen,
Thank you for taking the time to write the Central Park Conservancy to get some answers concerning this reckless and heartless treatment of the humble wild animals which make Central Park their home.
Yes Karen, Mr Blonsky is lying. You will notice that in Mr Blonsky's own letter his initial claim;
'There have been no birds separated from their young', yet in the following paragraph he ensures;
'mothers can get to the nests and care for their young'.
Well Karen the mothers made the holes in desperation to get at their young because they were separated!
Mr Blonsky and his heartless staff will continue to lie and deceive as they steal Central Park away from the people of New York City and turn it into a sterile landscape for fickle and undeserving human visitors. For now I am just going to address a single, and I may add singular, statement which Mr Blonsky made in his letter: 'This roosting creates unsanitary conditions under the loggia'.
Mr Blonsky appears to be unaware that bird droppings has been and will always be a major contributor to the growth and propagation of trees and other vegetation on this planet without which life will not exist for most of us. In the Public Theater's mad rush to sell hotdogs and soda and other garbage which is sickening our society they were not prepared to tolerate the natural environment into which the Delacorte Theater is nestled.
Well if Mr Blonsky thinks that a bird's roosting creates unsanitary conditions do compare it to these conditions photographed in Central Park on Sunday May 25, 2009.
