Standard sign posts, used on roads and highways across the United States, pose a significant danger to wild birds when signs are attached to them improperly. Signs should be attached above the top of the post to prevent birds from getting their talons or digits stuck in the exposed sign post holes. Employees should be on the look out for these sign posts and should report them to the proper authority when found. Road maintenance crews should be informed that improper sign installation will endanger wildlife.
