Frank (aka rabbit) please? If you believe that JAMBA and CAMBA came about as a
result of cannon netting you are just as mistaken as if you believe i am a night
parrot. Migratory bird agreements result from political agreements or treaties
on the protection of significant migratory bird sites. If some of the birds
up at these places happen to be banded, in most circumstances it has no
importance to the agreement.
It was my intention to voice my opposition to cannon netting because i was
to. im sorry if I offended some of you.
