BIRDS OF A FEATHER: In Minneapolis, Rochelle Olson reports the Vikings "won’t be spending" an extra $1.1M to "protect migrating birds from crashing into the team’s new stadium." The Vikings and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority yesterday "confirmed that decision after the Minnesota Audubon Society sent out an alarm saying the structure’s 200,000 square feet of glass could be a 'death trap' for birds traveling in the Mississippi River corridor." The Vikings said that they are "working with Audubon on lighting design and procedures but can’t afford the added cost of special glass" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 7/24).
