Two years the original I and the Bird passed on to that great server block in the sky, Mike, Corey, and I are resurrecting the venerable blog carnival in a new and improved format. Mike announced the news last week and now the wait is finally over. The first I and the Bird of the new era is published here at 10,000 Birds and the theme, now laser-focused on a group of birds every time out, is that most endearing of feeder visitors, NUTHATCHES.

That yanking, beeping clan with the notable head-first style is a far more diverse group that we in North American and Europe appreciate. Sure, those white and red breasts are great, but you haven’t lived till you’ve seen the Beautiful Nuthatch of Southeast Asia or Turkey’s dapper Kruper’s Nuthatch.
All that and more is available at the re-inaugural I and the Bird. Come join us!
Nice compilation on the Nuthatches Nate! I’ll have to get around and visit all the links, especially those to the foreign birds, some of which I wasn’t even aware of. Welcome back, I and the Bird!
Huzzah, and thanks for bringing this back.
