Every interest and avocation admits to a continuum of enthusiasm. Some people simply like surfing, dancing, stamp collecting, etc. while others are freaks about their passions. Birding is another one of those activities that elicits varying levels of passion. We’ve got our casual browsers, backyard baronesses, weekend warriors, amateur ornithologists, and professional birdspotters. Then we’ve got our birdfreaks. Eddie Callaway is one such specimen. Today he proves there is room for more than one hobby even in a birdfreak’s life with his buoyant baseball-themed presentation of I and the Bird #103!

Another esoteric level of mastery into the birding mysteries is actually blogging about birds. Are you that kind of enthusiast? If so, join the not-so-secret society that is I and the Bird. Our plans for international dominance proceed swimmingly as the next editon will be hosted from one of our avian oberving agents in Peru. Send a link and summary for your best recent post about birding or wild birds to me or Gunnar Engblom (kolibriexp AT gmail DOT com) by 7/7 for the 7/9 edition.
