Lighten up folks! If one is out by themselves on a trail I think that is a good example! That is the plan.... be separate! Tell me how that is a problem!

Our actions speak volumes and mean so much more than how we explain our actions to other people and our communities. Doing everything we can is the least we can do... If we find ourselves having to explain why it is OK for us to go, while those around us should stay perhaps we should re-think... Sorry for the preachy tone. For some this may be among the most important decisions we ever make. Enough said (or perhaps more than enough...)

> There continue to be numerous Ebird and Tweeters reports of birding in many places around the state. Maybe some are on permitted walks or visits to groceries, BUT are from remote destination areas. I understand that the chances of acquiring or transmitting COVID-19 are small or nil in these areas, but we are all in this together and if this is the response of the birding community what kind of example is this for other communities and individuals who may feel they too can ignore the order to do something they like and just maybe endanger themselves and others?
