The ABA's new home!
by Nate Swick
Old news to those of you following ABA prez Jeff Gordon's Facebook feed, but the American Birding Association has recently departed from the sterile, corporate office park environment where it spent the past several years and into new, homier, birdier, and cheaper digs elsewhere in Colorado Springs.
The move was made official just this week when the office furniture finally made it over from the old offices. In the finest birding tradition of friendliness and willingness to share our passion, first lady Liz Gordon and Membership Coordinator LeAnne Pilger attempt to sell the moving company crew on the wonders of Colorado's birdlife and the advantages of an ABA membership (right?). In any case, the front porch certainly looks like an inviting place to make that argument.
And the move is already paying dividends! According to Liz, one of the very first visitors to the new office was a lapsed member from the neighborhood who visited to re-up and volunteer some time to the organization. If you're the kind of person who looks for signs, it's hard not to take that as an indication that this new location is going to be a very positive development for the ABA!
If nothing else, we've certainly got a place to hang our flag.

The new street address is:

Colorado Springs, CO 80904
