This is curious.  In AZ we have a well known Spotted Owl roost where humans & birders have co-existed for decades.   The birds are so cryptic that many walk within 10 feet but never see them.

    As one of the participants on the WOS Conference trip to the Spotted Owl nest site and as a passenger in Tom's vehicle on this outing. I am surprised and offended that he is being accused of using a GPS to "mark" the exact nest location. I"m surprised since I think that every person on that outing could easily find their way back to the site without a GPS so there was no need to mark the spot. The participants gave our word to not reveal the nest location or make a return visit. Birding is an activity where your various life lists as well as individual sighting reports are accepted on "your word" (unless backed up with photos) so I find this unfounded rumor very offensive.
