I am soooooooooooo tired (18 species of warblers in one day--oy). I think I may have over birded at the Detroit Lakes Bird Festival. I have to say, it is one of my favorite bird festivals--the other one is the Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival, if you can only ever afford to do two birding festivals in your lifetime, those would be the two I recommend. I'll blog more about Detroit Lakes when I'm more coherent--incidentally, I would start making plans for next year asap--they announced that David Sibley himself will be there. I didn't know he still did festivals.
In other news, a chronicle of my adventures in Arkansas on the Cornell Ivory-bill search has started up on Eagle Optics website. There's a lot to cover in what happened in a two week period. More updates will be added soon.
