Bill Thompson III, also known as Bill of the Birds, will be leaving 10,000 Birds because he just can’t keep up with the vigor of bird blogging at the fast paced, deadline-driven environment of 10,000 Birds. Or maybe it had something to do with rasing a family, having a day job, and trying to get some books published. You can find him out at his retirement farm, otherwise known as his original blog, talking about the good old days and yelling at birds to get on his lawn.

We’ll miss BT3, and are glad that the archives of his Offbeat Birding beat are still here to peruse (and even more glad that he might occasionally do a guest post here).  Good luck, Bill of the Birds!
