In this world, there are tortoises and there are hares. Birding is hardly a hare’s game unless you’re racking up a Big Day. Birds are generally as put off by the combination of reckless speed and arrogant sloth as old Aesop was. No, if you want to enjoy bird watching to the fullest, take the Tortoise Trail. And this advice has never been truer than today, as Pam Shack delivers a magnificent and melodious I and the Bird #34.

No matter what velocity your birding takes place at, I and the Bird should be just your speed. Be sure to share your best wild bird blogging with us in the next edition of IATB scheduled for October 26. Our next host will be Dan Rhoads of Migrations so be sure to get your submissions to Dan (daniel-dot-rhoads AT gmail-dot-com) or me (mike AT 10000birds-dot-com) by Tuesday the 24th.
