Discussion: baiting birds for photos 討論:餌誘拍鳥

An interesting article from a recent New Scientist about wildlife filming at the BBC Natural history unit.  I love watching wildlife documentaries but this has taken some of the shine off them.  It seems baiting is required for the "best" shot. ... odys-faking-it.html

I too feed birds; I throw a handful of bird seed in a couple of locations in Lam Tsuen- it is mostly feeding spotted doves but has brought in Japanese Quail and Yellow-breasted Bunting.  I have no issue with feeding birds but I do with the harassment of birds that are feeding!
