Climbing a tree and/or tipping out chicks ?!!

I'd say this was more likely the behaviour of an unprincipled frantic
photographer or egg collector rather than a twitcher. I've been a twitcher
for twenty two years and have NEVER witnessed or participated in anything
like this. In fact had I done so the person would have been reported and
called into disgrace in the birding world. In whatever low regard twitchers
are held by certain quarters of the birding fraternity one must resent the
implication that twitchers might do this sort of thing.
I've heard of some twitchers indulging in a bit of trespass and justifiably
being brought to account for that, but not climbing trees.

Tony ( member of the twitcher "brigade " and proud of it)
