No.  Not the answer. That would be a throwback to two generations ago when there was an "old boys network" and everyone else was locked out.

While, that is a viable punishment, safety of the bird is paramount and birders will have to be birders and do their own due diligence.  In other words, find your own dam birds instead of chasing a list.

Just my opinion, YMMV.

Why is the solution always to punish the good birders who only want to enjoy looking at these rare birds?

Why not punishing the misbehaving birders/photographers?

If you see someone breaking the law by harassing a migratory bird or stepping on restricted area to get closer to it, call the police and photograph them being arrested. Then post their photo on social media and let it be a lesson to all the misbehaving birders.

This collective punishment doesn’t help any bird or birder.

Probably another successful chase away thanks to the photographers on the scene last night who relentlessly chased the bird from one pool to the other despite being told that the bird was best observed and photographed from the car.  

 

Unfortunately the solution may be to no longer post birds to the list until after they’re gone.

The previously reported Ruff at Heckscher State Park was not relocated this morning at about 7:00AM. However, it may still be here but becoming more elusive.
