As long we have unsustainable commercial development we will with 100%
certainty lose most of the birds of this planet regardless of using tapes or
not. So my advice to averone, use the tapes and enjoy birding as long it
last. It will have a very small impact except in the US and Europe where
birds are taped out. This is not the case in Australia with so few birders.
Go for it! And enjoy birding!
