Hi all,

Like many of you, I've been out birding while respecting social distancing protocols. This morning, I went to see the Tufted Duck at Burnaby Lake and there were many people there who were not respecting social distancing. I do not in any way want to impede on birding as it's important in these difficult times, but I was wondering if, on the Rare Bird Alerts, there could be a message encouraging this protocol?

Thanks for reading and I hope you and your familys' are well,

Sam

Hi Sam, I also wonder why so many people continue to ignore the flood of information thats been made available regarding social distancing. My only conclusion is "You can't fix stupid"!
Good luck on your walks and stay safe. Harris
