At the meeting in San Francisco, of the American Geophysical Union, the biggest meeting of Earth and Planetary scientists. It was said that lasers were being used from both NASA aircraft and spacecraft, to identify populations of Woodpeckers.
It was said that, the density of the population of Woodpeckers is believed to correspond with the population of bird life in general, as other birds use old woodpecker holes as nests.
Although the ratio of Woodpeckers may, correspond with that of bird life on a whole be correct. I find it hard to believe, that scientists are prepared to spend the millions of dollars, it must cost, just to acquire this information. Especially when they are prepared to pay very little, to stop the possible eradication of any one particular species.
NASA, Spacecraft, Woodpeckers, something does not add up.
I am sure that the World Wildlife Fund or similar organizations, could have found better uses for that money. If that was their concern.
So, who is first to get this information? Ornithologists or Government Organizations.
It doesn’t matter if the populace vote for privacy or not, we will be spied on. Because you have a tree in your street or you don’t have a tree in your street. They both determine the population of Woodpeckers. If I am not mistaken, where there are no trees, Woodpeckers have been known to nest in wooden telegraph poles. So, a true survey must look everywhere.
Governments will spend what they want to spend, on anything they want to spend it on, regardless of what the voters say. This cannot and will not change. However, they could at least consider telling the voters the truth on what they have spent their money on, even if it is after the fact.
