One thing no one seems to have picked up on is that all these so called
'ferals' have been in Australia almost 150 years, so this is hardly a new
problem, and why should it suddenly be of concern now? In that time other
non-Australian birds such as Cattle Egrets have migrated here under their
own power, and there does not seem to be any outcry about them.

Surely the most invasive 'feral' is homo sapiens, who apart from introducing
most of the foreign birds was also responsible for the land clearance etc.
maybe we should eliminate them as well?
