659RE: [CALBIRDS] Masked Booby
- Jan 18, 2002A Masked Booby is currently at the Wetlands and Wildlife Center of
Huntington Beach. "Found injured in Corona del Mar with a fish hook in it's
stomach". See story at www.latimes.com/tcn/pilot/.
Pretty likely the very same bird.

This issue has not been addressed and very well should be. A
bird, just because it was in a place not normally seen, was hounded
to injury and probable death. This was done, according to the posts,
not just by new birders "who didn't know better" but by "dedicated
birders". With the pictures to prove it.
In good conscience I feel as if I have to unsubscribe to this
and the other bird lists I am on. If I'm lucky enough to find a real
rarity, I will watch it and then quietly walk away telling no one but
my life list and my husband. I know many will not agree with me but
I'll sleep better knowing I am not the cause of some bird's death.
Many people speak of morals, ethics and responsibility I believe
there are many people who need to re-examine their values.
