I'm on line to a world wide bird rescue org at
*yes* same stupid stuff happens here, every time we
have an oil spill (blood-taking) just foolishness is
all ... no logic to this process at all. 
Unless some kind of disease is rampant it's really a
waste of time anyway, not to mention money ...
Bird banding:
As much as I love birds I hate to get caught up in
these ridiculous debates ... they do not need any more
info then what they already have.
Some good news anyway, the Kakapo - rarest parrot (in
world, in NZ) now reproducing like mad! 33 babies on
the way! It was down to about 7 remaining birds at one
point! (flightless parrots) here in NZ

Who said anything about bleeding birds?

I did .....

This is not a practice carried out by bird banders.

At all David?
