The person who asked about the gang-gangs in sydney, and about
specific nest information, is not someone known to me, or someone who
has posted to birding-aus before. It might be a genuine request to
see the birds or to study them - but we don't know ANYTHING about
this person, who uses a hotmail account and could be anybody at all.
Sorry - I don't mean to appear unfriendly, but I don't think we
should be giving out nest locations for species known to be lucrative
in the wild bird trade. We should be particularly wary about birds
that are marginalised in any given location or habitat.
I don't want to start a huge thread on this topic or the original
request - could you please take the matter up with me personally if
anyone has anything to discuss.
Of course, if one of our regular contributors knows Mary Hopson and
can vouch for her, then please let us know. Even then, I'd be
reluctant to see too many details (appear publicly on this mailing
list) about how to find nests or eggs of some species, especially
