August 2008: Retrospecticus
What began as a slow month for The Drinking Bird finished strong because of one man.
Yes, the day Obama announced his running mate my blog was beset with google searches looking for photos and info on the vice-presidential candidate. So a post I wrote almost exactly a year ago was, by far, the most popular entry page around here. Whether or not those folks stuck around was a mixed bag, but in any case, it bookended a fun month.
Reminisced about my first Christmas Bird Count…
Closed the book on year one of ORVs vs Piping Plovers…
Now that September is coming along and the birds are starting to come back, you can expect some more exciting field posts, as well as some exciting other things. I don’t want to give too much away, but if you’re at all interested on what happens to birds once they head to a museum, you’ll not want to miss next month.
Good birding to all, enjoy your fall.
