I want to acknowledge the many thoughtful replies I got to my rant on birders and snowy owls. I wish I could pass along the information I received, but most of it was private and off Ohio-birds. Two photographers actually mentioned Susan Sontag! Suffice it to say I've broadened my outlook on the topic, and enjoyed conversation with some thoughtful birders. More people than I thought observed owls to learn from them, rather than just taking and ticking the birds. May they educate the rest of us! Bill Whan
