Too Cute?

Dear Bird Voyeurs,

Submitted for your approval, or disapproval:

Nest Box Cam season approaches, and I am still not sure what I think of it all, but I spend a few hours every other week counting and watching the birds at the feeders for Project Feederwatch.  How far am I from playing dress up with my feathered friends, I wonder?  Am I a deontologist or a consequentialist?
More about Piip Show.  More about Feederwatch.  More about surveillance ethics.  If you read the entire article, you can reward (?) yourself with a look at this bit of film, and further contemplate our insatiable appetite for entertainment and knowledge.
