Ok, I hadn't considered them part of the discussion, but surely once
even escapes or releases establish viable populations, we have to admit
them to our listings. Hence dear old Starlings, Sparrows, Mynas,
Goldfinches, Greenfinches, Blackbirds etc etc are all now included
because we can't get rid of them and it's foolish to ignore them.

Not that it matters in any way to me, but there's a hole in your logic
Tony that seems to allow escapees and releases. But, as I've said
before, tick what ever you see fit, it's your list, no-one else
(should) care what's on it.
I however won't be ticking it, and hope that it's destroyed before
slinking off to find the rest of the House Crow secret society, lying in
wait for sufficient numbers to arrive and begin breeding, and fulfil
their ultimate goal of destroying all native avifauna.
