Hello all,

Given the Australian experience of bird and egg smuggling, perhaps we might
be a bit circumspect about providing information as to the specific
whereabouts of those rare and/or endangered birds which are particularly
attractive to the aviculturists of the world

This applies especially to the members of the Cacatuidae and Psittacidae
families which seem to hold a strong attraction far those collectors of
captive birds, to the extent that they are prepared to pay large sums of
money to possess a rarity.

For those folk interested only in seeing these birds in their free state,
there is surely plenty of readily available information in specialty
publications and field guides without the need of detailed information from
specialised sources as to their whereabouts.
