Armchair Birding and Eagle Prosthetics

My birding lately has been strictly from behind closed doors. I've seen a whopping 8 species of warbler this year! My work schedule has been kicking my butt. Instead of enjoying birds, I get to read everyone's reports. Five Cape May Warblers, Loggerhead Shrike, Wilson's Plover, and FORK-TAILED Flycatcher - all at Sandy Hook in the last two days. Ugh. The World Series this weekend will be my solace. In other news, here's a story about a Bald Eagle getting a prosthetic bill.

I know that eagle! She came from Bird TLC in Anchorage.
If they perfect beaks, maybe they can work on building prosthetic wings?

Regarding birding indoors: welcome to the club!!
Hope your weekend will rock, though! That list of rarities is frustrating, especially as Sandy Hook is your home patch and you can't go.
