We can't have it all - unlimited human population, unlimited human consumption of habitat and proliferation of the entire diversity of wildlife. We can only try to temper our insatiable need to have and control every aspect of and every speck of life and resources on this planet, and do this through continued experimentation, analysis of the results and willingness to change our thoughts and plans in accordance.

I'm inclined to think that we need to buy a little time with some strategic reduction of some Barred Owls, not only to see how the Spotted Owl fares, but also to see if it makes a difference in population numbers of other birds and animals that the Barred Owl also affects, (example: Western Screech Owl that it preys on).

I appreciate all those who have and still will participate in this discussion - it's nice to get some new material to help me formulate my latest thoughts on this subject (which actually comprises a multitude of issues).

Once again, the Tweeters forum stimulates some brain cells...:-)
