Mike,

Thanks for the very cogent post. I agree a compromise will have to be reached. One possible route I have mentioned in the past is he one the Aviculturists came up with almost 20 years ago. It is The Wild Bird Conservation Act of 1992, and it is the reason that they have no worries about losing their hobby to draconian legislation.

Under the tenets of this Act, mass importation of all wild-caught avians ended. In return, Aviculturists were allowed to breed, sell, and transport birds across state lines to their content. In addition, qualified breeders are still allowed to import limited numbers for "new blood" for breeding programs.

The Avicultural hobby and industry has done very well under this law for almost two decades-perhaps something similar could help us now?
