Who knows what is the due date? Nobody.

Don't you mean AS YET!!!!! but that day is fast
approaching, and we can, and will know? refer to
recent Ozbeeb show from the UK on gene study.

That assumes that the concept of a due date has some
kind of moral or other credibility.

Are you saying it doesn't? or only for and in a
certain context? human lifespan study perhaps?

The simple fact is that many species are suffering due
to human induced pressures of habitat loss, pollution,
hunting, etc. Losses from bird banding are trivial by
comparison and the benefits gained can be of great
help to reducing these other losses.

Aaaaah, but Philip, what is trivial to you, may not be
so to me, or others? the death toll from merely
putting a band around the leg of a solitary bird's leg
maybe as you say very low BUT what about the entire
act needed to do this task? are they not still adding
to the increased death toll rate? I totally agree with
you Philip re: the prime cause BUT the overall
increase, as more and more learned places, partake in
bird study, actually means?

Once upon a time this planet had only one school? it
used to share all of it's knowledge? guess what they
once called this school?

Have a good day, time for some home made, warm, home
grown tomato soup and bikkies .... hmmm I might have
some myself if I could get them out of this big beak

Kind Regards,

P.S. I liked the joke ....
