If any one is trying to access the news item in Qld Country Life - For some 
reason it does not
appear on their website - however the printed version is in Queensland Country 
Life. December
28.2006, page 52, columns 2 & 3 under the heading "Pest-bird survey".  I have 
again compared
the information I submitted and I stand by that information.  The last sentence 
of the article states
that live field trials will be undertaken over the coming year.
The article states that questionaires were sent out to 545 commercial feedlots 
and only 42 (8%)
responded which means that 503 or 92% didn't respond and the results appear to 
be shown as
percentages of the 8%.
Dr Steve Lapidge states how they propose to exclude parrots.  Perhaps he might 
take the time to
explain how he proposes to exclude finches and similar birds.  Like many others 
I consider
starlings a pest species but I do have concerns about Australian species which 
may be at the
