We all know that blogging is an art unto itself, or at least we like to tell ourselves that. Birding too requires as much creativity and intuition as ornithological acumen and field prowess. This must logically mean that bird bloggers are doubly endowed with the artistic spirit, or at least we like to tell ourselves that. But some among our number are triple, quadruple, even quintuple threats, capable of inspiring wonder in nearly any media. Vickie Henderson is an artist. If you’ve visited Vickie Henderson Art, you already know that. If you haven’t visited yet, here’s your chance to see how skillfully she works in the medium of blog carnival. Enjoy her fluid case for the compelling nature of birds in I and the Bird #93.

Every one of our posts about birding or wild birds are worthy of adulation, accolades, and ridiculous numbers of readers. At least we like to tell ourselves that.  But some posts truly do rise above the rest. Those are the ones to submit to I and the Bird. Our February 19 edition will be hosted by Larry Jordan at The Birder’s Report so be sure to get those links and summaries in to me or Larry (larrytech AT frontiernet DOT net) by February 17.
