Although never very active, it seems this forum died when it was moved to General Outdoor Equipment from the old forum structure that binned it with other equipment including optics. I rather suspect that all the topics in the General Outdoor Equipment section get less attention than they might if they were included with other equipment. Also, I would think it would make more sense to include Bird Sounds Recording in the same forum as photography, digiscoping and art. In fact, I would suggest merging all three of these fora into one. It is awkward to have to back up to the forum level to go between related topics in these three fora.
