[CT Birds] Fear and Self-loathing

Having just finished reviewing my batch of votes for the ARCC, I am left
angry and saddened by the way some members of the Connecticut birding
community regard other members of this community. I am brought to this by
reading how a very good bird was seen in the state but not made public
because of. the anticipated bad behavior of borders and listers ( you should
probably add bird photographers to this list as well) that would make the
scene a horror show. This is incredibly arrogant and so wrong-headed! I
respect the right of property owners to not want birders on their property.
Private is private. I did not go see the Bradley Airport Mountain Bluebird.
This is not my issue. What I am absolutely offended by and getting very
tired of is the way that well-embedded members of the birding community
continue to put out in public that we are a gang of misbehaving children
that cannot be trusted to respect the rights of landowners, property, or
the well-being of birds, in our pursuit to see or, god forbid, photograph
What is wrong with us ?
