I think town planners should have Birders as consultants! : )
 Town planners by some form or another do have consultants advise them on 
matters (there are elements of the biota other than just birds to consider) - 
mostly what I do for a living!  The real problem is that these things are dealt
with on a case by case basis, and no real account is taken of cumulative impacts
or broader trends.  Australian White Ibis are uppermost in the thoughts of 
managers, airport managers, local picnic spot managers, etc. - but there's not 
in the way of coordinated consideration going on for this or other opportunistic
native beasts.  Cheers, Lawrie
