Dear Carla

Many thanks for that advice about not feeding wild birds.

I hadn't appreciated the point about the impact on competition
for nesting sites before.  It's not mentioned in Ellen
McCulloch's June 1999 Bird Observer article on "Feeding the
birds. Right or wrong ?" nor in the NSW Volunteer Co-ordinators
Network Natural Areas "Some reasons why you should not feed
birds in your garden or in parks." (also 1999 I think - it was
reprinted in our local Banksia Bulletin in Winter 1999).
