The moment birders everywhere have been waiting for is almost here.  No, it is not an epic morning of birding full of a host of life birds but the theatrical release of The Big Year, the movie about competitive birding based on the book by Mark Obmascik.  It will star Steve Martin, Owen Wilson, and Jack Black but I am really looking forward to Jim Parsons as a bird blogger.  The movie will be released on 14 October but until then here is a preview!

Corey is a New Yorker who lived most of his life in upstate New York but has lived in Queens since 2008. He's only been birding since 2005 but has garnered a respectable life list by birding whenever he wasn't working as a union representative or spending time with his family. He lives in Forest Hills with Daisy and Desmond Shearwater. His bird photographs have appeared on the Today Show, in Birding, Living Bird Magazine, Bird Watcher's Digest, and many other fine publications. He is also the author of the American Birding Association Field Guide to the Birds of New York.
