Does Mark intend to find a way to 'preserve' this number of birds somehow? or maybe to decrease their number?
If Mark gets his way, will it be because -
he gets the help of the government?
a lot of other people will help him?
he'll show others the need to increase or reduce something?

Do these birds eat something in particular that is relevant? reside somewhere relevant?

Would having more birds decrease the number of something else? which mark does not like? which is considered a nuisience?
Is birdsong relevant?
Are these attractive birds? relevant?
