Robert Mortensen has been named “Bird of the Year Coordinator” for the ABA.  Here’s hoping he does the right thing and chooses Green Heron as the Bird of the Year for 2012.  Who’s with me?

And, if you want, use the comments to put forth your idea for the 2012 Bird of the Year (you had just better pick Green Heron).
