You shouldn’t be surprised to learn that there is a bird blogger in Libya, where people have become emboldened enough to try to take down the brutal dictator Muammar al-Gaddafi. Bird bloggers are everywhere after all.
The situation in Libya makes my having missed seeing a woodcock so far this year a bit more tolerable and makes me feel virtually powerless and wishing there was something I could do. I guess it can’t hurt to pay a visit to Birding for a Lark or another blog based in Libya that I found today, Khadija Teri, who has been posting every day through the current crises, and maybe even leave a comment letting them know that they are in our thoughts.
Here’s hoping that the al-Gaddafi goes quickly and a democracy flourishes in Libya and in a couple of years a big bunch of bird bloggers goes to see what north Africa has to offer!
