[Tweeters] Please model appropriate behavior during this pandemic

Just to be clear, Gov Inslee's order does NOT prohibit going out, even
on trails (if open).  His web page states, "People can still participate
in activities such as bike rides, gardening, and dog walking — as long
as they follow social distancing rules.  So, it's the gathering that is
prohibited and folks need to stay at least 6+ feet apart.

I've already noticed some"shaming" of birders for going out at all (on
Tweeters, for example) and that isn't appropriate either.

We've appropriately cancelled sponsored events. That's in keeping with
the "no gathering" edict but let's not pile on if someone goes out on
their own and then reports a "find."
