Owls

One of the most common bird problems is birders and photographers HARASSING OWLS. Especially i they are not facing the photographer or birders way. It could really stress the bird out and could lead to death. When I enter owls on eBird I usually enter the town I saw it in.
Just making sure nobody on iNat is harassing owls!

I don't want to put actual location as many people have been harassing these owls. Also it has a injured eye

I guess this is necessary when it comes to rarer northern owls. Our owls (Great Horned, Eastern Screech, and Barred) are common throughout the city and don't seem to mind the noise pollution.

I agree! That is why I did not pinpoint the exact location of where I saw the Burrowing Owls. I didn't even have to get out of my car to photograph them. So I was able to stay a distance. The location of the owls was given to me in confidence to protect them, so I honored that.

@thatkazakhbirder @azbirdsandblooms I read an article, it was about birders harassing the endangered Short-eared Owl. Most of the time, owls are harassed for no reason. One of the birders wrote in a eBird report o a Long-eared Owl "... there is no reason to harass the bird, as I got good looks of it
