This reader of the tweeters postings might consider use of a laser pen light to
be rather cruel and maybe not needed. The flash from them causes much distress
in the field of air traffic and shining them on aircraft in our area is highly
dangerous and illegal. Surely you could be satisfied by what you could see with
your naked eye or binoculars. Try using your ears and other senses instead.

The reliance on technology is leading toward very lazy birding, if you ask my

Subject: [Tweeters] Laser pen light?

Hello Tweets,

I’ll be traveling in Ecuador in late June/July and would like to take a laser
pen light along to help point out those hard-to-see birds deep in the
jungle/brush. Can anyone recommend something reasonable priced and effective?
