Having seen a number of rare birds get run off by too many overeager
birders, I can agree with you.  However, one of the ways people see good
birds is from information via posts on birding bulletin boards such as MOU,
South Dakota-Birds, TexBirds, etc.  Maybe the way to satisfy both the
cautious and those people wanting to get a lifer is to end a post with
something like "For the exact location please e-mail me off-list at ".

Subject: [mou-net] Birding Request

Since winter is right around the corner I thought I make a request to all
MOU members who are subscribe to the MOU listserv to not post exact owl
locations if you spot an owl this winter season or any roosting owl
locations to the MOU listserv.  I also would hope that all the MOU-RBA
editors do the same on the RBA weekly postings.

This is just a request I am asking to all MOU members and non members who
are subscribe to the MOU listserv.  It seems every winter season there are
ethical issues going on each winter season when a owl is located and the
exact owl location is shared on the MOU listserv.  

I definitely like to see MOU listserv subscribers mention any owls sightings
they see on their post but instead of sharing the exact location I would
prefer subscribers post county, township, or state park, county park and
etc.. anything that is vague enough but not the exact location.  

I am not trying to create a debate here but requesting MOU listserv
subscribers to not post exact owl locations this winter season.  

Thank for your consideration
