Sorry for the delay in writing... Beth and I took her brother to Boston for his 18th b-day. He's a big Red Sox fan and we saw them beat the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (worst sports team name in the world) in 11 innings. We didn't get to do anything nature-related and I passed on an attempt at the nearby Black-tailed Godwit at Parker River NWR. It hadn't been reported in a few days, so I passed. It hasn't been reported since Sat., so I don't feel so bad. Just some random notes for today:
- Rick Wright posted a nice review of Beadle and Rising's new book Tanagers, Cardinals, and Finches.
- Thanks to Birdchaser for this story of a hawk that was shot with an arrow. What the heck is wrong with people? If I found the guy who did this, that arrow would be somewhere unpleasant.
- A participant on a recent field trip sent me this article about the insane invasion of butterflies in South Texas. It's worth a click just for the picture.
