Because they send me thing like this:
“In all honesty, being that this is near a Burger King entrance, aren’t the birds better off?”
Thanks, Barb Abney!
And at least the sign reads “birds” and not “seagulls.”
For those in the Twin Cities area next week, we are having a book launch for my newest book 1001 Secrets Every Birder Should Know on May 7 from 7 pm – 8:30 pm. And I’m super excited because it will be at Glam Doll Donuts!
These ladies make super tasty donuts! [...]
While in the Rio Grande Valley, my friend Marci asked if there were any birds I needed. I don’t really have any lifers to get there but I said, “I’d like some quality time with a caracara.”
She smiled slyly and said, “I think I know a way to do that.”
I’ve seen crested [...]
I love all of you. When I send out a challenge, you try your best. I wish I could give away a Crossley Guide: Raptors to everyone, but alas, like the immortal Highlander, there can be only one. So, I present my favorite and the overall winner of the Crossley Contest (see the original plates [...]
Man, if anyone get’s that reference in the title, we must be of similar ages.

Just a reminder that there is a Birds and Beers next Monday, March 18, 2013 at The Black Forest Inn in Minneapolis. Anybody is welcome, if you are interested in birds–it’s for you! Have a birding project, tour or book you want to promote? Bring it! I’ll be bringing a box of birding stuff–review items, birding samples [...]

I know a lot of you are going to be checking today to find out who won my spotting scope. There were A LOT of entries–over 500!
The winner will be announced to day, but most likely not until the evening.
Just a quick reminder that you still have time to enter my spotting scope giveaway contest–just a couple of days left.
I sent off my scope to Swarovski to get it checked out and make sure it’s in all top working condition for whoever wins. Perhaps I wasn’t quite ready to let it go. [...]
