We never know where I and the Bird will take us, or who we’ll meet through its travels. For example, IATB is seldom hosted from the Southern Hemisphere and even more rarely hosted by the author of a fantastic field guide. Yet the newest edition of our mighty bird blog carnival has at its helm Susan Myers, illustrious tour leader and author of Birds of Borneo, a truly lovely work I’ll be reviewing in full soon. For now, you can enjoy Susan’s expansive edition of I and the Bird #114.

Wherever you are, whatever you do, I and the Bird wants your best blogging about birding or wild birds. The last edition of 2009 will be hosted by Jason of xenogere, so get your links and summaries to me or Jason (jason AT xenogere DOT com) by December 15.
