Two graduate students, Sarah Hume and Douglas Hume, are conducting a survey of birders, who use electronic rare bird alerts, to study how electronic rare bird alerts have impacted the behavioral, identity, actions, emotions, and other aspects of birders. This study will also try to determine how these changes in behavior effect local economies. This electronic survey is strictly confidential.
