Make your own Myna trap workshop

I recieved the below message from a colleague who has recently attended a 
course here in Canberra to learn how to make his own Myna bird trap out of 
chicken wire.  After using the trap in his backyard for approx 6 to 8 wks now, 
he has caught and more importantly disposed of 20+ flying rats with some basic 
materials that are relatively cheap.

Subject: Canberra Indian Myna Action Group [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]


Some Canberra Ornithological Group members have set up a group (CIMAG) to deal 
with the Indian Myna problem in Canberra. This group is seeking people who 
share their concerns on the Myna impact in the local environment. If you would 
like to join or support the group please contact Bill Handke       Ph. 6231 
7461       or email  

The greater our membership numbers the more clout we have with local government 
etc. Peter Green of this group has designed a lightweight manageable trap that 
has a one way valve that makes them very efficient. He sells the traps for $50 
to cover material costs but also runs building workshops. There is a 
possibility that when warmer weather approaches both Bill and Peter would join 
us in a building workshop at ANBG one evening or perhaps a Saturday. Let me 
know if you are interested.
