Hi Gary

I'm not proposing a bounty for trapped birds so does that change your thinking 
on this? 

Bounty would only be eligible to those whose information (e.g. photographic 
evidence) is subsequently corroborated by an inspection of the area/property by 
an appropriate authority.  If the landowner reports the birds in the first 
place, then a condition of receiving the bounty would be access to the property 
to inspect, and permission to trap where warranted.

The notion of shady customers breeding blackbirds then releasing them, hoping 
they'll establish territories at/near point of release, on the off-chance they 
can claim a bounty or two in the breeding season seems a hard way to make a 
crooked dollar.
