The birders are headed to a nearby town called Burns, Oregon to evict the armed squatters. While the ranchers might play hunter on occasional weekends, the birders know how to survive in the outdoors, armed with nothing but cameras and binoculars. While the protesters are obnoxious and heavily armed, the birders blend in.
In an open letter in the Daily Kos, Kevin, a wildlife teacher and nature photographer who goes by the name, Norwegian Chef posted a “warning from the birding community to the terrorists in Oregon: We’re watching you.” The birders don’t hesitate in calling the militia men “terrorists.” They’re pissed at how these particular entitled feeling ranchers abuse federal wildlife land and the wildlife itself. In fact, the birders have been standing up to these guys for a very long time.
