Firstly my apologies to all that, although being a list member for some time, most times I skim the large volume of email so that I'm not sure what discussion has gone beforehand regarding the avian flu virus problem, particularly in relation to migratory birds.

I feel the following may be of interest.

"GRAIN report says global poultry industry is the root of the bird flu crisis."

for the brief story or read the full report: 
"Fowl play - The poultry industry's central role in the bird flu crisis" at:

It's encouraging when a group (GRAIN) publishes a self-description in clear view for visitors:

GRAIN is an international non-governmental organisation which promotes the sustainable management and use of agricultural biodiversity based on people's control over genetic resources and local knowledge.
