Once again the argument regarding the alleged death and injury to birds by bird 
banders has reared its head on Birding Aus. It is unfortunate that those in the 
anti-banding camp do not spend their energies campaigning against the greatest 
killers of birds in Australia, vehicle and building strikes and habitat 
destruction. Every year, tens of thousands of birds are killed by vehicle and 
building strikes in Australia and goodness knows how many are killed by habitat 

If those in the anti-banding camp are serious about their cause, they would be 
campaigning to the various Ministers for the Environment, not just wailing in 
the wilderness of B-A. I am quite sure that the Federal Minister, Greg Hunt 
would be able to help. After all, he has declared the end of loss of threatened 
and endangered mammals by 2020. If he can do that, elimination of death and 
injury to birds by banding should be a doddle for him.
