 Hi all,

I think this also involves a courtesy issue.



Over the years I've been on lots birding adventures in the presence of other
birders, some organised some chance meetings. On the occasions where someone
has had playback I am yet to be asked if I, or the other birders mind if it
is used. This can ruin a days birding, having to grin and bare it, being too
embarrassed to say anything at the time and feeling very angry. 


Maybe we could be colour banded to tell each other apart. 



Play back definitely has a place, in research and field study, but using it
as a way of 'ticking off' another bird gets the thumbs down from me. 

Leave the ipod at home; use it as a learning tool, not a honey pot.
