should have read the blog post concerned before asking for his "evidence":
arborist was hired to lop the limbs off the tree.
bird was sitting on eggs at the time the tree was lopped. Presumably it would
have not remained sitting on the nest while the lopping was underway.
provide a first-hand account from somebody who was actually there and prepared
to go on the record. This was the person who discovered the nest. His claim was
put to the Queensland Environment Department, which declined to respond.
Queensland Government officers studying the endangered Red Goshawk on Cape
York lopped the limbs off a nesting tree while a bird was sitting on eggs to
improve photographic opportunities.
a fairly serious accusation, Greg, and it comes in three parts:
- It was the Government officers who were the ones studying the Goshawk
who lopped the tree (and not, for example, the local electricity
- The bird was sitting on eggs when the tree was lopped (and not while
the parents were off hunting)
- The reasons they lopped the tree was to improve photographic
opportunities (and not, to continue the alternative example, to lessen fire
evidence do you have to support these three separate accusations?
