Rich, KE3Q, makes some great points, and it would be very interesting to
ask the "reporter" , and the government "employee", how many birds were
killed annually flying into the glass windows of the many buildings and
owned by the BBC, and by the US Government. Must be in the millions huh?
If the BBC and other huge media outlets had any credibility before the
latest war in Iraq, their blatant and flagrant anti-American/Coalition bias
while "reporting" on events there only allow me to give them the respect they
earned........very little to none. If they had an agenda there......the obvious
conclusion is, they have agendas elsewhere.
I have 4 towers ( 65-160 footers), and the grass is cut regularly under
them including guys etc..........only the occasional bird carcass that appears
to have been the meal of a hawk.....while making this point, I seem to find
many more carcasses of rabbits and field rats under there. I just hope the BBC
and the US Fish and Wildlife Service doesn't "investigate" the apparent
suicides of these animals by leaping to their deaths from my towers. No telling
sympathetic wacko group would come out of the woodwork.
