Andrew states:

" Incidently a 4% reduction in US bird strikes would be worth about A$30
million per annum."

True, but my point is that culling of 4% of the resident population Canada
Geese is unlikely to result in a 4% reduction in bird strikes. Resident
Canada Geese are likely to be somewhat habituated and perhaps more
knowledgeable about how to avoid aircraft in the region than migratory birds
on passage, or new birds that come into the region from other areas to fill
niches left vacant by culled birds.
