It is interesting that this is a topic of conversation, as I was mulling this over when last week I observed a caravan of cars speed down Gage Road. Clearly, these folks were trying to more closely access the flock of Snow Geese in the field near the trailer on Gage Road. After their short, but high velocity, journey, they hopped out of their cars scopes and tripods at hand and walked around farm equipment and out into the fields. setting up camp not 25 yards from someone's home. Now we all love to see that migrating oddity, but it seemed to me that these birds were much less than respectful in their enthusiasm. Hopefully, we can all be a bit more mindful others in our birding.
