Entire Field Trip Schedule will be published in the next issue of the Spoonbill. SCIENCE, BIRDING AND THE RIGHT STUFF: AN APPRECIATION The recent documentation of the Yucatan Vireo on the UTC as a new addition to the North American avifauna was an event of overwhelming popular, if not ecological, significance. Such an event brings the oft-repeated conflict of scientific collecting and the sport of birding and all of us, a cognizant, eminently capable team of birders, aided by a little luck, documented this avian visitor in such a fashion that science and the birding community were both well served. In response to some low-level mumblings on the topic, we had originally prepared a long-winded dissertation on the relative value of, and need for, scientific collecting versus the equally legitimate rights and rituals of the burgeoning birding cadres. Such a debate will persist forever and our essay would have swayed no hearts. Instead we would simply like to commend Jim Massey, Larry White, Jim Morgan, Ted and Virginia Euganks, and all others involved for a shining example of how to handle the documentation of a super-rarity. This team simultaneously demonstrated the sharpest edge in a scientific pursuit and exemplary birding etiquette and we thank them hearily for both.
