Patrick & Doris:

Exactly who are the "oversight authorities" and are the two of you  
one of them? If not, who do we report these abuses to? What was your  
status during these surveys i.e. are the two of you employed by the  
state, Feds, or some similar organization that monitors shorebirds or  
were you there as a "citizen scientist" and/or public/private  
observer? It would be helpful if you elaborated a little more about  
your position. Thanks.
