Spent 15 minutes just trying to get the last wimpy bird to follow me into trap and the NPC doesn't even follow me, but trap will show a bird is caught. The checkpoint in the quest journal doesn't get highlighted though, making the quest impossible to complete. Was wondering if anyone else had the same problem.

Have you tried the in-game report a bug feature? It's the Flag with an X on it in the chat window, same starter link as used to report a player (but you choose the report a bug option when the menu pops up) Things may be looking down now, but I see a light at the end of the tunnel;
Do you think I should get off the tracks?

I myself have had a very similar problem, I went through more than a full inventory of Tansymum and it still hasn't gone onto my snare. Tried logging, lobbying, hopping, leaving the location, everything. I also submitted a bug report in-game although I don't know how often they check those.

Found out what the issue was/is!

When you catch them during the quest, the NPCs are replaced by "Flying bugs", which can interfere with the bird snares.

By this I mean that they can be attracted by the burning Tansymum, and set off the bird snare as if it were a wimpy bird itself. If this is the case, this is a prime example of how poor/buggy the coding for some of the content in this game is, especially regarding questing and NPCs.
