Most North American birders may not know or care but one of our national organizations, the American Birding Association, is in the midst of serious turmoil and perhaps profound change. Three of bird blogdom’s biggest thinkers — Nathan Swick, Kenn Kaufmann, and Rick Wright — have weighed in on the ABA’s past, present, and possible futures. An excellent use of your time would be to read each of these posts (including their comments threads), comment there, and then return here to share your thoughts.
