I did read the post Iain. I always do. Otherwise I couldn't comment.
Understood regarding your preference. We're all different, just like the birds.
My main point is only that there may be little connection between the two things you're observing.
This afternoon I'll be in touch with Audobon on the east coast about dwindling populations of certain birds in the neighbourhood where a good friend lives.
Maybe they'll tell me that it's down to raptors. Maybe they'll tell me it's down to the fashion for spraying lawns against mosquitos.
Maybe they just won't know.
Glad, though, that you take your duties as the apex predator seriously (that is, after all, what we all are). And I'm sure you would do the same even if the law allowed...
