THANK YOU DANIEL!
Yes, Glenn just sent me a PM informing me that I must have insulted all you great experts! When I responded to Glenn, I had NOT seen any other response. (I still have NOT seen Bill's -- so sorry Bill!) I was simply asking for folks like Mike , Bill, Dan, Will, Karen etc to chime in. Folks who have actually studied the issue both academically and through their years of field work.
Glenn, WIll B and Dan S have been very kind and helpful to me and my education. I love all things natural, beautiful and all science. I have great curiosity and interests which makes it difficult to spend enough time on any one subject so I have to rely upon yours and their expertise. I appreciate all the help I can get!
I hope this clears up any miscommunication and hurt feelings.

Miscommunication... I'm an expert on that myself. Joe Tucker, you had commented on the mockingbird threat with this comment:
"GREAT questions Glenn. I hope some of the real bird experts will respond. Dan???"
My guess is that Bill had commented(possibly privately) before your comment and so to him, it looked like a comment aimed at him, suggesting his advice(which I didn't see) was not worth much.
Bill, if you're following this, I don't think Joe saw your comments and I am certain his comment was not referring to you.
I make these errors myself... and cause them as well. :(
I wonder if birds ever miscommunicate in some way. That could be interesting.
