We went to see that bird and recall how well-organized Dorothy was re visitors.
Thanks, Dorothy!

There is often more to a story than we know and this is a classic case of several well-meaning people getting caught up in the changing wishes of the bird's host; everyone involved had the homeowner's comfort/happiness and the bird's well-being as driving factors in their actions, while also wanting to share this remarkable find with other MD birders.

But we should not publicly impugn the motives of anybody serving as manager of a rare bird sighting. If you have a problem, discuss with said person. We are all too quick to assume ill motives of others. I would assert that virtually all of us, in fact, wish to provide the fullest access possible to a rare bird, consistent with the welfare of the bird and the interests and wishes of the property owners. Without the later, nobody sees the bird.
