Chaos at "Crane Creek" (USA)

Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, Ohio, USA

This was just moments after this excitable lot had just checked out a Black-billed Cuckoo in the trees above a packed boardwalk on International Migratory Bird Day. An estimated 15,000 people attended this event (this outlandish figure was taken from an official survey), could this be the biggest concentration of birders on the planet? Who says birding is dying out, you could not guess it from this hyped up crowd enjoying a good stock of warblers and other "Erien" migrants that day.(NB. Crane Creek State Park has now been re-named as Magee Marsh)

I can see lots of people in the picture but no birders.

Wow! Doesn't a crowd like that scare off the birds?
