First eliminate all the birders on this list who are well known responsible birders, then when most have been whittled down, the others could maybe reply justifying why they are not the hoaxer. think Norgate is top of the list with the innocent ' I'm going to be looking for this bird' yarn but he admitted to me personally the other day he has no morals, proper X Files this - everyone's a suspect.
Cheers Pom, very helpful! I was tempted to post a pic of one I found in Tokyo a couple of weeks ago, but decided better of it (by the way it wasn't perched in a blossom tree)
I still can't find out anything about the bird. Coincidence that the tweeter is not from Norolk?!? Lucky blighter if it is real!!
