Graph - Birdiness vs. Social Acceptability
Birders aren't known for being cool. This is partially due to the inherently obsessive nature of our hobby, but also because of the, um, obscure places we tend to visit. When was the last time your neighbor dropped by the local waste treatment plant just for the hell of it? Never. Because they are normal.
Our high-tech graphics department produced this precise visual representing several popular destinations, comparing social acceptability among non-birders to the locale's birdiness per acre. It is generally frowned upon to stare into someone else's backyard with binoculars, but this awkward endeavor can yield some great birds. In the unlikely event a birder is concerned about their "coolness", this graph can help them weigh the worth of each location before committing social suicide.
