Greetings birders,
I am after any recent material on techniques for minimising bird 
damage to fruit crops.
In 1991-1992 I did some work in vineyards and cherry orchards in 
South Australia, and am haunted from time to time for advice on 
preventing bird damage to fruit crops. However I have since moved on 
to study birds in remnant vegetation and have thus lost touch with 
the recent literature and latest techniques.
Of particular concern at present is the problem of starlings in orchards & 
vineyards in the Orange district of NSW, and to a lesser extent 
rosellas and honeyeaters.
If anyone has any relevant information could you please let me know 
either directly at the address below or via this list if you think it 
is appropriate.
Thanking you in advance.
