Dear Eric: I've always though birders to be a generous lot, so I am
dismayed by your "Sorry, I will not be sharing specific locations."
Followed by an ingenuous "Good birding." Perhaps there is a defensible
reason for your not sharing, but it seems shabby to report that you've seen
or heard something and then refuse to allow others the same pleasure.
