This concludes the session which is marked for the morning. These gentlemen have presented you with a number of alternative methods or op-tions. There are a couple of concluding remarks I'd like to make. One, to those of you who have attended or specialized in bird control conferences or meetings, I'm quite certain that you realize that in terms of something new and startling, there have been no major advances in the past four years in terms of techniques or materials. However, the presentation which we have just concluded very clearly brings out the fact that there have been many advances in the past two or three years in adapting techniques we already have to new and different situations, in expanding our ability to apply these materials and methods, and in presenting a more rounded individual in the bird management field.
