Lil bump - just keeping it in view for a little longer - if word gets around the respectful photogs and birders will keep their eyes peeled when visiting. It's an enchanting place
Photographs - unrepeatable - unforgettable...
Wish I could help patrol the area and see the owls. Maybe someday.

I'm saddened to read about this. I live on the mainland and I was planning to go back to the island this winter. It's been too long.

Couldn't agree more, I was quite happy to see the patrol, they are not only a wealth of information as they are Islanders, know the woods intimately and walk the woods daily but they will stop the BS going on. The patrols are avid birders and photographers themselves.
There are volunteers that do the same thing, on Kauai, for the Monk Seals that come out on shore to sun themselves. They travel the shoreline and rope off the seals when they find them; then they do patrols to try and keep people from disturbing them as they sleep.

I see this is an old thread, I hope the situation has been corrected. Unfortunately there are stupid people everywhere doing stupid things. If I were in the area I would be happy to help patrol the area as I am sure most of the people on this forum. Good luck with your efforts and may the idiots get burned in their pocket books!

Thanks for posting this. A good reminder as it'll soon be owl season again.
