There are over eight years of 10,000 Birds blog posts in our archives and we like to believe that at least some of them are really awesome. Unfortunately, they don’t get the attention that they deserve because, well, who is going to go looking at a post written on a bird blog five years ago? We have been sharing some of our archive on the 10,000 Birds Facebook page but thought that some readers would like to see some of our classic posts right here on the blog. So, moving forward, we will be reposting one of our favorite posts most evenings (East Coast time). We hope you enjoy them!
