My stint accompanying the Swarovski Roadside Hawks in the Great Texas Birding Classic 5-day Bird Race has come to an end, but the action still continues. Clay Taylor is tweeting the action @CTaylorBirder and all Birding Classic tweets can be followed via #gtbc11. I highly recommend following this amazing team’s bird chasing exploits… their combination of intensity and ability makes birding exciting! And be sure to return here tomorrow for my report of their first massive day in the field.
