As an avid birder and former employee of the National Audubon Society I believe we should be taking precautions to protect these birds and other shorebirds within reason however. Educating the public and closing off actual breeding areas such as dunes and certain sections not just entire spans of the beach should be enough. No need for around the clock paid babysitters and such. However, the world has entirely gone to **** and will continue to. Tax dollars, red light cameras and all other absurd revenue and what not just go to peoples pockets and other self interest ventures. Sad but true, no sense getting upset about it or trying to change anything. I'll stick to fishing.
