Is that an entirely fair comparison? I would think that 4 Canada Geese
(being big birds that can be found on water) are a lot more easy to
eliminate than a breeding colony of Rose-ringed Parakeets, a species
that is well established in captive populations anyway and are
frequently supplemented by new escapers / releasees.

I think BA/BOCA are drawing up a stance on invasive bird species, both
native and introduced, the Bird Interest Group of NSW and ACT have/are
providing comments for this. Funny how 4 Canada Geese were quickly
eliminated by the same department that did not have the funds to
eliminate a breeding colony of Indian Rose-ringed Parakeets near
Wollongong, 100 Km S of Sydney. Seems that agriculture comes a long way
ahead of biodiversity.
