Turkey Day (apt for everyone but the turkeys themselves) is past and now the first world’s collective attention turns to highly conspicuous consumption. We birders are not entirely immune to materialism, but we also enjoy much that the world offers for free. Here’s a Black Friday challenge for you, assuming you can tear yourself away from your local big box: see how many birds with Black in their name you can find today. I’ve got one already and am wondering where to find the next!
The weather here in Western NY is rather balmy, so I feel moved to get out this weekend. Corey is far afield and never wants for motivation to chase birds wherever he is. How about you? Where will you be this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.
