Queensland Country Life newspaper 28/12/06. p.52 has an item that field trails 
will take place in
2007 using the poison D1339 in feedlot rations to kill birds including 
cockatoos around feedlots and
piggeries.  I would think that any grain eating bird visiting the site would be 
at risk regardless of
it's rarity.  The trials with the livestock industry have been funded by the 
Invasive Animals
Cooperative Research Centre and the Natural Heritage Trust.  Who is actually 
carrying out the
trials and how dod they propose to exclude non target species from access to 
the poison?
