    Where did he travel around - the US? I remember a book by a young birder mostly hitching around the US, mostly east coast but also Texas. Can't remember the name though... Paul

    Stuffed Birds on Ebay

    Is Harshit mis-spelt? "Sellers need to ensure that they have the necessary government permits to sell these items suggests that eBay has no interest in these permits. Also, if they do have these permits that they are not interested in, then that is fine. Well done eBay. Paul

    Trump administration unwinds Migratory Bird Treaty Act

    I read somewhere that ocean reserve areas set up in New Zealand were fought tooth and nail by local fishermen. Now those same fishermen are their main guardians, as the reserves replenish other areas which they can fish. I don't think the GOP world view can peek much beyond the next profit...

    Tern ID. N. of Sweden.

    Long cap on head, fairly sizeable bill and thick dark trailing edge to underwing suggests common. I think. Paul

    Must be plenty of republican voting birdwatchers out there surely? As you say, the flailing desperation of a drowning man. Paul
