I would hate people to accept this point of view and so not put birding stickers on their cars. I have had stickers on my cars for 20 years and have never had a problem. (If anyone did break in the most they would ever find is a rather battered field guide.) I carry out commonsense precautions, such as never leaving valuables in view and never putting anything in the boot before leaving the car. (If I am leaving anything in or taking anything out of the boot I do so before making my final stop.)

 however If you put stickers in cars or pennants attached to
aerials you are certainly advertising that you are a birder. You are also
telling people that you are carrying around a lot of expensive equipment (&
frequently leaving it in the car). This is an open invitation to car thieves
to break in.
