I disagree that the U.I. has not jumped throughhoops over this issue. They stopped the initial irradication program and proceeded on ly under the watchfull eye of the Federal Authoritites who were the ones who fisrst killed the birds. Quite to the contrary. It has been observed and ascertained the the heat from the Transformers is he exact reason that the Monks nest there. Otherwise why are they the ONLY species in the Northeast that does this. Numerous Orinthologist have stated clearly that being a Tropical and Sub-Tropical species that there survival is based on being able to obtain the heat from the Transformers for small group survival. The larger nests (and there are few) that are built in trees is fostered by the number of birds that reside in the nests and huddle for warmth in order to survive. Also, why do you say that the U.I. employees state that the birds are not the cause of the transformer shorts and fires that have started? In all three instances, there were fires on the poles in which there were nests directly underneath and around the Transformers, two were the direct result of BIRDS bridging the insulaters (the fried birds were found) that carry the 13,800 volt wires that feed the Transformers over the tops of the poles and I will admit that the third was undetermined, but none-the-less right underneath a nest??? You state that U.I. has not been agreeable to "Alternative Methods" for controlling the birds. what you really mean is that they have not been agreeable to the Gestapo like tactics employed by FOA. Dictating to a Corporation what they can or cannot do with their own equipment is no way to foster coooperation. And furthermore...What do you think that one of those nests weigh? And how can you state with any accuracy or credibility at all that it was NEVER about human Safety vs the birds. And why would you try to convince everyone here that there is no justification for the irradication program? Do you honestly believe tha the U.I. is doing it simply to chap your Butt? Or, maybe you believe the they have sooo much money and cant think of any other way to get rid of it before Uncle Sam taxes it. So, hmmm I know lets go kill all of those harmless Monk Parrakeets? Really? No justification at all, huh. Just Propoganda, huh. All lies. And just how would you justify them doing that. Next time dont supply me with contacts at U.I. offer up some supporting facts and not a bunch of FOA conjecture, and I firmly believe that you are using the same Propoganda claim that you accuse U.I. of.
You are a A-HOLE. Get lost, loser.

Let the birds be free and live where ever they want to live. They do poop a lot and talk loud, but the are good looking.
