[Tweeters] Please model appropriate behavior during this pandemic

Per Scott Downes’ earlier kindly worded plea, can’t we just stop this lecturing? Even as someone stuck home with a sick person and awaiting test results, this has all gotten way too much. Let’s just enjoy the birds whether they are in our yards or 6 ft away from others somewhere else, read books about birds, or watch bird shows on Netflix. Please, per the mission of Tweeters, let’s keep our focus on birds, rather than each other.

>> 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."

I understand that we are a group that values our outdoor experiences but that is why it is even more important that we, as leaders of the organization, should be adhering to the rules and guidelines asked of us to keep our communities safe.


>>>> We will not publish the March 20, 2020 trip report...it was NOT a Pilchuck Audubon Society sponsored event. Please don't ignore trail/area closed signs and if you find yourself on a path or area where you cannot practice safe social distancing please leave the area. While I recognize that this new "not normal" is less satisfying, it is still possible to get exercise and enjoy the outdoors without compounding the problem.
