I am disappointed that the topic of responsible birding has been raised on 
Ontbirds again.  Thoughtful birders feel strongly that birding whether with 
a camera or binoculars involves due consideration to the objects of our 
interest.  Ontbirds and our sponsor the Ontrario Field Ornithologists expect 
and demand ethical behavoir whenever and whereever we bird.  OFO's policy of 
ethical birding is thoughtful and should be embraced by everyone reading 
this list http:\\www.ofo.ca\whoweare.htm#ethics

That said Ontbirds is for reporting birds pure and simple, it is not a forum 
to discussion, debate or education.
