Avoid making loud noises and whisper if you need to make necessary conversation while watching the birds.
We will maintain a safe distance from the birds so as not to disturb them. We will not indulge in bird-baiting to see or photograph the birds better. We will enjoy seeing the birds in their natural habitat.

It is recommend that we regard people's sentiments such as mandatory removal of footwear in the temple premises and so on.
