Your favorite bird blogging carnival (I and the Bird is your favorite, isn’t it?) often finds itself on the road, moving from one end of the Earth to the other in but a fortnight. But how often does our host travel farther than our carnival? I can’t say I’ve been keeping track. This time, however, I’ve been following the punctuated progress of Carrie Laben as she crosses America from the Big Apple to Big Sky Country Montana. Yee-haw! No matter where she rests her head, Carrie carries with her a fine virtual home in her fine, fine blog, Great Auk – or Greatest Auk?. Visit her there as she hosts a juicy “Carrie goes to Hollywood” edition of I and the Bird #131. Stay tuned until her big finish!

Where have you been and to where are you going? Will there be birds along the way? You might want to blog about those birds and submit a link and summary to the next edition of I and the Bird, hosted by the indomitable John Beetham of A DC Birding Blog. Send your submissions to me or John (empidonax AT gmail DOT com) by August 31 for the September 2 edition.
