Ocean Ridge: Town agrees to bird-sanctuary status

The town of Ocean Ridge is now a bird sanctuary, taking on the distinction with a vote of the commission at its Sept. 8 meeting. The ordinance prohibits trapping
or molesting birds, or robbing their nests.

The sanctuary status means that “you can shoo them (birds) away, but can’t shoot
them away,” said Commissioner Betty Bingham in response to public comment
during a hearing on the ordinance.

Another thought from the public: “I want
to know how it would affect the cat population.”
