Gooday all,

I've said it before and say it again, what we need is someone, a character that people can identify with who appears on popular tv shows to do basic stuff on backyard birds.

Here in Queensland we have Pat Comben, Ex Qld. Govt Environment and Heritage Minister doing 5 min. segments on the News, whereby he advises people about the relevant wildlife maters such as Magpie breeding season, suburban birdlife, how to attract wildlife and methods of protection of our wonderful wildlife etc. He would be readily recognised in Qld. but for a National identity who would be possible nominees? Wilson "Ironbar" Tuckey, John Laws, Alan Jones, Robert Hill or for that matter Dame Edna? Provided she does not wear any plumes in her hat.
