Re: How to Flush a Snowy Owl video
Point of posting this video was an example of how NOT to act in the field
whether it be photographer OR birder with/without a camera.
Nothing more.

Good birding,

I worry where this discussion could lead. No one is expressing an opinion that 
what the photographer did was wrong. The continued conversation on this 
subject, in my opinion, is just setting the line of birders vs photographers 
even deeper. I have been yelled at because I had a camera in the field while 
birding. Posts such as this will only add to the opinion all photographers only 
care about the shot. 

I hope most know there are bad photographers just as I'm sure there are bad 
birders. Everyone just needs to understand its not the norm the behavior shown 
in the video for the majority of photographers 

Good birding everyone
