      I actually entered the 20th century and bought the ‘app’ for the Kindle Fire; love it. Now when I’m leading a group I don’t have to lug a book. I have noticed a couple of mislabeled songs, though.

      Good to hear, Rick!  I'm sure David would appreciate your feedback on things like mislabeled songs.  The neat thing about apps like this is that mistakes like that can be corrected in future free updates, unlike books where typos sit permanently until a revision which of course you then have to buy…

      yes, I neglected to take note of the ones I saw, but I’ll pay attention. This really is a great thing.

    Birders know well that the healthiest, most dynamic choruses contain many different voices. The birding community encompasses a wide variety of interests, talents, and convictions. All are welcome.
    If you like birding, we want to hear from you.

      It was a winter morning, the cloudy skies blocked out the brilliance of the sun. A chilly wind ran through the treetops like a group of mad, fast-moving invisible Capuchin monkeys. The branches of a nearby tree were shaking uncontrollably and the delicate stems could not support the weight of its leaves and blooming flowers. […]
