Local people have different ideas. Some insist on skin protectione etc.

One guy on a list server:

I agree on all points. Particularly in seeing myself in some of the bad habits more than I would like to admit. The floppy hats are a mixed item. I know some people hate them, but they are not that bad. It is usually only an issue with a taller person who insists on always standing in the front. Short people, please don't be shy, move to the front.


other guidelines discussed

Some of the guidelines included:
- "If you can't shut up while out birding, you need to take up a different
hobby"
(authors words not mine)
- Know where to stand in the group, i.e. NOT in front of the leader, don't
go ahead of the leaders
and scare the birds away, etc.
- Learn/use the "clock system" ......(please)
- Clothing not to wear ...disagree about the floppy hats even though I don't
usually wear them.
Some folks are dealing with skin cancer or trying to prevent it.

Summertime I don't use a hat, or if I do, a floppy one, because it is easily rolled in a pocket. Here's the hat I use in arachnological society's meetings:

Of course, the sun is not as intense, even if it is on the horizon at midnight..
