Papers from FAO/OIE conference on wild birds and H5N1, held in Rome at end of May, now available on FAO site:
Looking thro listings, and briefly at abstracts, seems presentations from v few ornithologists; bias towards believers in/people v open to believing in the Tooth Fairy Bird. [Tho overall evidence against existence of this oft mooted but never discovered species.] Haven't had time to check the papers, see re sources of funding for various research projects; might be interesting to do so. Does tendency to believe in Tooth Fairy Bird increase with funding from FAO and other organisations that have proven very willing to blame the wild birds?
