    The Meadowlands has experienced repeated problems with people who are so intent on getting better views or better photos of the Snowy Owls that they have thought nothing of trespassing on private property to do so.

     To help educate the public, a birder suggests that this blog post the American Birding Association's Principles of Birding Ethics.
   The link is here. In a nutshell, the principles say:
    "Everyone who enjoys birds and birding must always respect wildlife, its environment, and the rights of others.  In any conflict of interest between birds and birders, the welfare of the birds and their environment comes first."
