Birds that rarely fly, such as roadrunners, or those that swoop low to the ground, such as pygmy owls, could also have trouble surmounting the wall.” (http://www.nature.com/news/trump-s-border-wall-pledge-threatens-delicate-desert-ecosystems-1.20431)

But for sure Trump also has a plan for all the ‘wall-kill’. “Short on detail”, long on sheep.
