I personally think its because we have been under pressure to file each and every occurence. Unless there was aircraft damage, in the past we didnt file a report.

One of the local
TV stations in the DC area has been running a story about "the potential for bird strikes." Much ado about nothing...

Hardly 'much ado about nothing'. Just how much is the question.

The City of Norfolk is planning to remove Bald Eagle nests from the Norfolk Botanical Garden, adjacent to ORF:
Predictably, the political rhetoric is off-the-charts ludicrous. "Relocate bald eagles? Why you hate 'merica??" ad nauseam.
And while the professional environmentalists, the ones with actual degrees in wildlife management, support relocating the eagles, all the 12-year-old "environmentalists" are up in arms and insisting that the airport move

When I saw the topic, the first thing that I thought of was militant bird unions. They have to be stopped!

It's annoying that the article never mentions that most bird-strikes don't force planes down into the Hudson River..
Are there really "more big birds flying"? I thought that, over the past few decades, we've effectively forced a majority of the "big birds" into extinction.
If the media giants catch wind of this bird strike increase, I wonder how long it'll be till someone brings up "The Birds."
