Todays Courier Mail article has a humerous side to it, but also shows that we birders need to be a little cautious peering around the suburbs with our bino's! I have on more than one occasion in the past felt a little conspicuous birding on my own in and around built up areas, particularly parks and schools! Sadly our intentions may be misread by a society more than a little jumpy about peoples intentions!
