Decision for the Birds

There is good news for the birds.

An old tobacco farm will be preserved as a home for migratory birds and other species.

Connecticut and Massachusetts will preserve 450 acres of land along the Suffield-Southwick line. The property will be managed by the two states.

A group called the Conservation Fund came up with the $4.4 million to purchase the land, which used to be an old tobacco farm.

Both states will work to clean up debris and other hazards from the land. Scientists will then begin tracking the different species of birds that make their home there.
