Don't tell my (non-birding) wife.

She always goes nuts when I'm driving in the country and spot something
and don't slow down.

Can't think why that might be....

Hi All,
          Just read a US report of a birder who rolled his car while
driving with his Swarovskis around his neck;  the airbag inflated and
crushed the bins into his chest with resulting fractured sternum and
ribs plus punctured lung. He survived after a stint in Intensive Care.
