I note Paul Osborn's posting in which he expressed surprise that nobody
had mentioned the ABC's 7.30 Report in which Dr Chris Tidemann and
others were interviewed re the Common - too common!!!! Myna.
I posted an email on birding-aus a couple of years ago in which I noted
the excessive numbers of Common Myna feeding on the lawns of a school in
Atherton, north Queensland.
At that time I asked one of Australia's leading ornithologists what he
thought about the Common Myna problem, and he replied "What can we do?"
This response frustrated me.
So I was thrilled to see that Dr Chris Tidemann has taken the Common
Myna out of the too-hard basket and declared war on them.
Each and every day our native birds face the threats posed by this
aggressive introduced bird!
I spoke to Dr Tidemann, and asked him how I could help the cause. I am
sure he would email info to you if you want to help our native birds
His phone number is (02) 61252375.
