Vikings won't enhance stadium to protect migrating birds

The NFL team and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority on Wednesday 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.
