November 2009: Retrospecticus

November 30, 2009

We birders have birds on our minds twelve months a year, but there’s only one month that the general public shares that obsession.  Granted it’s not really for the same reasons, but it’s a start, right?

Anyway, some stuff went on at The Drinking Bird, such as…

My inclusion on the board of a local bird club got me thinking about their welfare in the information age

I got a copy of David Sibley’s fabulous new Field Guide to Trees

Mourned the death of a young Sharp-shinned Hawk while celebrating its benefit to posterity…

Banded birds with to exciting young naturalists and birders

Considered the way people identify birds and posed some possibilities for why that is

And went birding, though not as much as I would have like (is that ever the case?)…

The end of the year is coming up, along with some fun things on the horizon.  I hope you’ll return!

    I saw your tweet concerning birds getting killed by propeller wind turbines. I found a company that solves that problem!

    perhaps you can help me get the word out by retweeting?

    “I hope you’ll return!”

    Pleas, Nate, of course!

    You’ll never blog alone.
