Typical eco-wacko conceit and arrogance. We haven't had Peregrine Falcons in 63 years because YOU haven't seen one? And they can't have chicks unless YOU "help"?

Trying to play God over all things great and small, numbering the beasties one by one, bothering the birds, fondling their chicks, disturbing the nest, putting foreign objects on them, capturing them, moving them around from place to place, all the things that woodsmen and farmers know better than to do if you really care about the birds, and not your own puffed-up self-important ego.

(Looky, looky mommy, I'm a hero saving the planet....)

Save the world, stay home and watch Captain Planet and we'll all be safer and better off. So will the birds.

Congrats to the people who are dedicated to protecting the rare animals in our world. If the harm caused by DDT used by farmers in the 40's and 50's had not been diagnosed and rectified by PEOPLE WHO CARE and brought to the attention of the world by Rachel Carson in her book "Silent Spring" there could be no more eagles and falcons and other top predators--indicator species--to enjoy.
As our world is poisoned, so are we. You bet there are people who are concerned about our environment. And I am glad there are. Following the fortunes of wildlife should be a concern for everyone, because sometimes animals need the help of humans as we modify and destroy their habitat as we alter the landscape to suit the needs of humans.
