Subject: RE: BS: Birdwatching 2009
Here in Midcoast Maine, my ongoing favorite for its song and elusive habits is the wood thrush. There are several this summer. They haunt the woods and edges of the pine grove, their song echoing over the farm gardens in the late afternoon and evening. The rubythroat hummingbirds have raised their young'uns, and buzz to the monarda patches blooming in scarlet, rose, plum, and crimson.

"Only in the USA, the answer to every problem is the gun."

ard mhacha- With respect, if you look into the issue of unwanted goose populations in the USA and similar population issues worldwide, you will find many situations with many solutions. I have used several of the alternative methods described in the pages of the third link listed below.

Both gun use/ownership and the handling of excessive populations of wildlife are complex issues and will be better served by cordial discussion in appropriate threads. If I can help with a clearer understanding of American lives and cultures you are welcome to contact me via PM.

I found this article
