Subject:Re: Birding Request

While I can understand the importance of protecting habitat, one of the 
reasons I subscribe to this list is to hear from other birders where opportunities 
might be found to view and photograph various birds. Last winter, a poster 
kindly let us know a northern saw-whet owl was in his yard; I showed up and 
other photographers were there as well and everyone was respectful.

I would hope that most people on this list are respectful of property and birds; 
this past summer the location of the grosbeaks was reported, as was the 
location of Whooping Cranes and I appreciated that. For me, it's helpful to 
know where birds are, and I'm especially fond of owls, and would love to drive 
to a spot, and take pictures from a distance. It would be rather frustrating to 
have someone just say they found an owl or bird at a particular park - frankly I 
don't know what the point would be of posting that at all if no one else could 
enjoy it. The Purple Sandpiper was a great example of the exact location 
noted, the bird being found and enjoyed. 

So, my hope is in coming months the updates continue on where to find various 
birds from snow buntings to waxwings to owls and that the folks on this list can 
enjoy seeing these beautiful feathered friends. 

Just my two cents,
Fr. Paul
