Here is episode 2! I noticed some people figured out the clue in episode one...will they get episode two and will that clue them in to the overall theme? Hmmmm. This episode is particularly special because we get to talk a little bit about a new app called BirdGenie coming from Princeton University Press and show one of my FAVORITE places to go birding in the world: the Rio Grande Valley and the best birder hotel Alamo Inn. There's even a Non Birding Bill cameo!
So, remember kids, birds shown in the first seven episodes have all been digiscoped by both Clay and me and are a clue to the series theme! If you correctly guess the series theme, you are entered into a drawing for a Swarovski spotting scope.

Swarovski Optik (the optics I've been using for years)
Alamo Inn Bed & Breakfast (the best place to stay for birding in the Rio Grande Valley, TX)
