We Must Be Solemn

The Bicknell’s Thrush in its summer habitat- what is the major threat?

Deforestation or anything that fragments the forest, don’t forget,

These birds like a dense, damp, spruce fir forest at a high elevation,

Humans also like to visit these mountain locations, for recreation

The White Mountain National Forest to six ski areas leases land,

This bird has a very restricted range as we have come to understand,

Their breeding territory could overlap with peaks at ski resorts

So, we must include environmental impact statements in our reports

Cannon, Wildcat, Loon, Attitash, Brettonwoods, Waterville Valley

Against acid precipitation, habitat loss and degradation, we must rally

We must have management plans as we monitor expansion of trails

The Forest Service is ultimately responsible for mitigation details

A balance of activities and uses on public lands is what we must seek

Wilderness, recreation, clean water, forest products, it’s all unique

Too much alteration of the mountain tops could be a problem

Wildlife habitat is a key objective about which we must be solemn.
