Re: mea culpa

Carolina Birders:

I'm a bit surprised that Buddy Garrett feels he has to apologize for 
starting a discussion of CBCs and Audubon's mission on this listserv. 
How can counting birds, science, and conservation not be fair game 
for this group?

I was out of town and didn't read all the earlier postings, but I 
sure didn't see anything that qualified as a "fracas" in the last 
couple of posts. Ann Shahib's email (and mine following it) simply 
presented some facts: CBCs are real science, and Audubon is doing 
good work on behalf of conservation.

Am I missing something here?
