Firstly I apologize to moderators for this extralimital posting.
I wanted to pass along some important information. I'm not suggesting that any NC birders were at fault, but wanted to save a potential long drive if anyone was considering going for these. Do not go.
Over the past couple of days I have received phone calls from the property owners where these birds have been present. They have not been pleased with some individuals behavior in trespassing on private property and disrupting farm operations.
Today I was instructed to "shut it down". The property is off limits as of now. Please do not try for these birds as it will aggravate the situation further.
This has become a nightmare for me and I deeply regret the situation I have created by sharing my bird news.
