As part of my PhD research, I sent a questionnaire to American birders. One
question was about what respondents wanted in a guide.
Knowledge of birds came first, followed by the free sharing of knowledge,
treating the country with respect, and safety.
I¹d like to know how others feel about guides. If you¹ve used a guide, did
you pick a particular one, for example? And if so, why?
