Is birding with drones a thing? Has anyone tried this? I mean to get up or around places where a bird or birds are, using a drone. Would it not work because of the noise or would they scare birds?
I’m just surprised that I’ve never seen or heard of this online or elsewhere.
This article outlines some good tips and cautions about birding with drones. Ultimately, you should be extremely cautious about how loud your drone is, and make sure that it does not get too close to nesting or foraging birds.
I do believe I read on Audubon that birds spotted on drones do not count on your life list.
Thank you very much for that, Katie.
Do you test it? I think they may be scare with drones
I had not heard of birding drones before this thread or reading the article. I also share the same concern that it might scare or confuse the birds, however, i am sure that there might be an ethical way to work with it and use it for deeper birding engagement.
