Breeding and
nesting season is almost
here.
Please consider
the impacts associated
with watching nesting birds. Birds are
hypervigilant on nest.  Our human presence creates
stress for
the parents. 


Additionally,
there are some nesting
birds, particularly raptors, that are staked
out.   They receive
no relief from the stream of observers and
photographers, who
will often spend hours with little thought to the
impact their
presence makes.


Because of this, we ask subscribers to not post
photographs
of nesting birds and to refrain from publicizing
their
locations.
Thanks to Marj
Rines for her post about
this issue on Arlingtonbirds.
