Mike - I did read what you posted. I also read everyone's responses and opinion and was responding to them all - not just to you. 

I can respect your opinion, your concerns and your decision to not post owl sightings. Good for you. 

As a lover of nature, I am hoping everyone else will still post owl sightings so we may ALL enjoy them. I think asking everyone on this list-serv to not post is selfish. It is an individual's right and private decision to post or not post. I have a Barred Owl living on my property in another state. I have not and will not post that information because I don't want people I don't know trespassing on my private property. My right, my decision. If however, that owl was along a county road, or a refuge, or state park, I would be happy to post that information!

I am all for everyone to post on all birds but again I am not saying keep bird locations to yourselves! I am saying share all your bird sightings rare or common sightings to the net. Just please do not tell me exactly where you saw a owl. Mention that you saw a owl but do not tell me exactly where. I wish people would read my posting because I had to repeat myself twice on this listserv.

Hello, 

It has been extremely interesting reading the debate going on these last few days. I just wanted to pipe in and say that I am a 'newbie'. I lurked for a year before joining and contributing. I am also a nature photographer and I take pictures of all things in nature, not just birds. I also write poetry to go with the pictures I take because I find nature so inspiring. I personally would appreciate it if people would post their findings, especially Owl findings. They are so elusive and I so enjoy seeing them in their natural environment. 

While I can understand where Mike is coming from, I have felt more in-line with the words of Father Paul. I think deciding to post or not to post should be up to each of us individually. I would love it if you continued to post on ALL birds, owls especially, so I can go and enjoy them in their natural setting and take a few pictures. I'm not interested in baiting an owl or any other bird. That's not natural. Especially if the bird is found along a public road, or etc. 

Also, I too find it disappointing and frustrating when people post but forget location. Also, I've noticed that some of you post locations but use abbreviation or acronyms and I have no idea what you are referring to. So for us 'newbies' if you could not abbreviate or use acronyms that would be very much appreciated. 

Have a great day!
