I Bird. I Vote.

Very interesting blog post from the new American Birding Association president Jeff Gordon (birder, not racer) who attended the Rally for Sanity and/or Fear over the weekend toting signs that read "I Bird, I Vote." How many times have we seen bumper stickers that read "I Fish, I Vote" or "I Hunt, I Vote" so why not one for birders?  It's supposed to be the second fastest growing hobby in the nation.  And from the many voters I meet, it crosses all political lines and parties.  I personally don't vote based on a particular party.  I tend to put my vote to the person I think will do the most for birds and wildlife and I think we need to waive our bird flags a bit harder in the future.  We are the voice for birds and wildlife...or at the least the translators and interpreters.
