I had met many birders this weekend there and thought nothing of it, though I was cautious. This man was then very forward with me and while he did not touch me, his comments and questions were very inappropriate. I left the conversation and went back to the fishing dock with the friendly folks fishing I was interacting with earlier until my friend joined me a short while later. I wanted to avoid going straight to my car.
