In our pursuit of nature, we're warming the planet. Can there be a course through this moral thicket? After all, birdwatching's carbon problem is a reflection of most everyone's carbon problem.
Brian, I'm pretty sure you and Bridget Butler (VT Bird Diva) must know each other, given your shared passion for birds. Her approach to "slow birding" and really getting to know and appreciate our "usual suspects" seems in synch with your message. I feel blessed to have two such wonderful "guides" here in our state. Thank you!
