> COBirders -- Please remember that you NEVER post someone's personal address without their approval. The first clue is that the homeowner posted her checklist at the park. There is nothing wrong with looking for the bird and being successful. You just view the bird and post back at the park. You need to remember this is someone's home and neighborhood. Joe Roller was always great about getting info from the homeowner and getting the rules out to the community. This is just common sense!!

> We have lost several good birding locations because of birders' rude behavior. There was a great location up in Summit County that had all the rosies and mountain species. Several birders knew of the location who were approved by the homeowner. It was an amazing experience to start the new year! He only asked that we stay in the street, respect his neighbors, and not post his exact location to social media. Well, someone posted the exact location and it became a circus! Not only did he shut it down to birders, but he took all his feeders down. I spoke with him after the fact, and he said birders were walking into his backyard, parking in the driveway, and upsetting the neighborhood. He was very sad that his great backyard experience was taken from him. In another instance, we had access to an Inca Dove. The homeowners were really sweet and allowed viewing. They eventually shut it down for their privacy and the health of the bird. She had Joe post that viewing was over. Birders continued to disrespect her wishes for days. I asked a birder why she went after the post and she stated "The street is public property so screw them." Yes, the street may be public, but you are looking with binoculars into their property! This type of behavior makes me ashamed of those in our birding community who conduct themselves in this manner.
