Good birding practices in a COVID-19 world.
Being able to bird in a COVID-19 world, either in your own home garden, a nature area, or here on Bonaire, requires that we all adjust our habits. Here are some general considerations to keep in mind when birding:
1) Don’t share your optics, including your binoculars, scope, or camera. Be sure to sanitize or disinfect the eye caps after each birding excursion.
2) Maintain social distancing of at least 1.5 meters between yourself and others in your group.
3) Avoid touching surfaces that others may touch, including railings, doorknobs, handles, or other areas in public sites. If you must touch them, wash your hands, or use hand sanitizer immediately.
