Hello All
Some birders demonstrate addictive behaviour.  While this is largely 
harmless, the lives of some revolve around finding that new bird to the 
extent that they have difficulty relating to other human beings (unless 
they have relevant information or demonstrate similar behaviour) and may 
demonstrate a degree of self-centredness which even affects their 
attitudes to the environment (for instance using tapes with vulnerable 
birds, going into sensitive areas).  I can well understand why such 
birders have a bad name whether they be called 'twitchers' or whatever.
