This morning at Jones Beach, I saw some people get really close and even heard from a third party of a guy chasing numerous times a bird with a point and shoot no zoom camera.
My question is : are these birds endangered and protected under NY state law and why isn't there any enforcement? Particularly with the Migratory Birds Treaty Act that protects these stressed out birds ?
