RE: Monk nest

Well, since Michael brought it up...  I also think that this situation calls 
for a good eco-samaritan act.  However, I dont think that the people in that 
community would approve of someone pulling up with a pellet gun (the 
extreme) and eradicating them.  They just like the pretty birds.  They think 
its special, and dont see the potential disaster that could result.  
However, I agree, that by some means these birds should be made captive 
again (probably not possible) or...  Though I dont like to see any bird in a 
cage, I certainly dont like seeing parrots in Nash County.  That my 2 cents. 
  Who makes the call?  I mean its looking like they are suviving winters up 
here well enough to start/sustain a population.  Lets just hope that the two 
birds left are of the same sex, at least.
