Bird Experts Worried Star Wars 7 Filming Will Disrupt Birds Trying To Get Their Sex On!

Star Wars 7 is currently filming and everyone is super excited!

Well, everyone except a handful of worried bird experts!

J.J. Abrams and his crew are going to be shooting on Skellig Michael, a remote island off the coast of Ireland.

The problem is bird experts are worried that filming could interrupt the breeding patterns of local guillemots, puffins, and peregrine falcons.

Dr. Steve Newton of BirdWatch Ireland said:

"[We] would have preferred the filming to take place in September than in July, when we have a lot of breeding birds still."

The movie isn't waiting until September though, it's shooting now.

Luckily, the shoot was pre-approved by the Irish Film Board. James Hickey, it's chief executive, said:

"[The shoot was] designed specifically to avoid disturbance of breeding birds."

The timing of filming was even approved by the National Parks and Wildlife Service! So it's all good!

Even local boatmen, who regularly ferry tourists to the island, have been paid 1,000 euros as compensation for lost profits while the island is closed off for the shoot.

Let's just hope no birds get hit by a stray laser blast.
