ABA Bird of the Year: Where's your Grosbeak?
by Nate Swick
It's been about a quarter of a year since ABA announced the Evening Grosbeak as 2012's Bird of the Year, and back, way back, when we made the boreal seedcrusher our spokesbird I asked for ABA members and birders to send me photos showing how, and where, they're displaying the little stickers.
Unfortunately, that request sort of corresponded with a big e-mail server switcheroo at ABA headquarters so it's entirely, and probably very, likely that some of those e-mails slipped away into the great internet ether never to be heard from again. For that I apologize.
So I'm asking again, with the promise to not allow the same sort of e-mail snafu to derail what should be a fun exercise in community bonding. Snap a photo or relate whether you have any stories as to where you've seen the ABA 2012 logo in the field so far (my personal fav is ABA Board member Jane Alexander flashing the grosbeak in Audubon), and send to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll share them on the blog.
