With nesting season underway and as somewhat of a follow up to what Carl posted below, it seemed like a good time to review the ABA Code of Ethics
. What does everyone think about this? Do you use this as a guide when you're birding? Do you use a personal code of ethics instead? Does it vary depending on situations or birds? Do you ever stop yourself from "getting" a bird or a photo because you feel it would cross a line to do so? I think we could have a good discussion here on this topic, but remember this is all just opinion. Unless of course we're talking about a violation of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act
in which case it's simply law and opinion isn't as relevant. Let's hear your thoughts!
