The big event is near and I can't believe I haven't blogged about it. This weekend, I will be part of a team of your favorite bird bloggers competing in Mass Audubon's annual Superbowl of Birding. Our team, the Bloggerhead Kingbirds, consists of me, Corey from 10,000 Birds, Quintus from the Owl Box Blog, Nathan from The Drinking Bird, and the brains behind the operation Christopher from Picus Blog. Christopher deserves "mad props" for all the work he's done for this. He's the "local guy" who has done all the legwork to plan our route, do lots of scouting, plan our hotel stay, rent a car, and even spearhead the creation of our logo. The competition itself is Saturday, but we'll be doing some birding on Friday and maybe a bit on Sunday. This area of Massachusetts is prime territory for King Eiders, Snowy Owls, Northern Shrikes, and all sorts of other goodies. In fact, an Ivory Gull or two has been seen there recently. I'm really excited about this weekend. To keep up with our shenanigans, Quintus will be mo-blogging the event to the Owl Box Blog and N8 will be posting updates to twitter. Wish us luck!
