Sad to see how his long time life companion "Serrafin" died though eh? 
considering how extremely careful we ALL are with laying poison baits around 
this land we are mere caretakers too.

Hmm thinks to myself ... I wonder how many humans have died from this type of 
poisoning, let alone the raptors etc etc here in Oz each year.

Ooroo my lubtar hall, JAG de Whag talking with Mr. and Mrs YTBC ... I wonder 
how I should pronounce that surname :^D>>> Abba bewt day.

Oh yeah nearly forgot, If you ask Neil Diamond to go out and help with the 
search, perhaps him singing "Cackling Rosy" just might help?

For those frustrated easterners salivating over the Rosy Starling in the far 
NW, can I suggest you just go a few extra miles and watch these birds for real 
in Central Asia. Out on the steppe in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan in 2000 I 
recall seeing thousands of the blighters - big wheeling flocks reminiscent of 
Galahs with the alternating pink/dark flashes of colour. It looks like this 
local wanderer is going to be a bit elusive on its own in such a big landscape 
- well done to those who found it in the first place.
