With the introduction of video and now DVD bird guides, I wonder if it is becoming less important to travel to get experience of a wide variety of different birds? It seems to me that a local patch birder that spent some time viewing footage of a wide variety of birds might end up learning more than a lister who spent equivalent time on their hobby, but spent more of it travelling to see stuff in the wild, and therefore less time seeing birds, either on their local patch or on a screen.
