American Birding Association Principles of Birding Ethics

Everyone who enjoys birds and birding must always respect wildlife, its environment, and the rights of others. In any conflict of interest between birds and birders, the welfare of the birds and their environment comes first.

  1. Promote the welfare of birds and their environment
  2. Photography use artificial light sparingly, especially for close-ups
  3. Respect the law, and the rights of others
  4. Ensure that feeders, nest structures, and other artificial bird environments are safe.
