How was your weekend? Did the New Year bring you any good birds? Don’t be shy… tell us about your best bird!

My favorite birds of the weekend were the Ravens from Baltimore who inflicted a great unkindness on the New England Patriots. The Ravens join the incredibly explosive Arizona Cardinals as the only two bird-named teams to advance in the NFL playoffs. Corey’s best bird was an actual avian, a Green-winged Teal in Cold Spring Harbor. Charlie is thinking of distant birds, which sometimes keeps him from enjoying his local ones.
