The ABA Bird of the Year for 2012 will not be Green Heron. I’m not allowed to say what it is until 20 March but, really, does it matter if it isn’t the finest of North America’s avifauna?

Yeah, I KNEW it was gonna be Bearded Vulture!
Your campaign still made more sense than Newt Gingrich’s.
@Jochen: Fat chance…
@Kirby: Now if that isn’t damning with faint praise I don’t know what is. 🙂
Green Heron was on the short-list. I think that the ABA has a special mission to combat the epidemic of entitlement to “immediate-gratification” so prevalent in today’s society. Sorry that you and your favorite Green Heron had to be made the example. Rest assured…the Green Heron will one day have its reign.
@Robert: I want Green Heron and I want it now!
Green Heron. Best Super Hero Name Ever.
