I am not opposed to using tapes and such but I disagree with your
rationale (and other peoples).
I firmly believe that until you are certain that something does not
harm the environment, then you should try and avoid doing it.
Not the other way around.
For example: Is there any proof that cutting down swaths of Sax-Zim
will hurt bird populations?

I use tapes as do most bird guides, field trip leaders and other
birders who venture in the field to view birds. I mostly use tapes
in the winter to get Boreal Chickadees out near the road but next
week I will be using tapes a lot for the next week and half on
warblers, sparrows and other birds when I visit Manitoba/Churchill.
Can anyone reply on this listserv any scientific papers that prove
that using tapes chases birds away, ruins nesting chances, make male
birds leave their territory and ect.. I would like to read any
scientific papers that using recordings do in deed causes all this
damage to birds. I heard there are no papers to prove that suing
bird recordings causes problems. I would like to know for sure if
there is some proof out there.
I would like to see the "Myth Busters" on cable TV work on this
subject of bird recordings.
