<snip> The USFWS is estimating between 4 and 50 million bird collisions with 
communications towers each year

That's a pretty dramatic spread - even in statistical process control those 
figures would be thrown out -- one would think the USFWS could do better with 
the math on that one -- 

Bird collisions with towers ?? wahtta load of horse dunky -- in 40 years of my 
tower life I've never seen a Mr. Magoo bird injured, maimed, or do damage to 
itself with a collision into a tower -- most birds I have at my QTH do more 
damage to the objects below the antenna-tower with the deposits of you know 
what.. not to mention the bent elements over the years from those "dangerous 
doves"  .. 

What's next ??  ban on domestic cats ??  I can say with certain the cat next 
door has sent more birds to the great beyond than my towers, wires or antennas 
ever did ... 

TNX Rick it is interesting to see the national priority changes with the new 
incoming congress  -- will have to keep a satirical eye on this one --
