Happy Thanksgiving from the ABA!

Not that birders need a specific day to think about birds, today, at least in the United States, is the one holiday on the calender that ostensibly promotes birds amongst the rest of the population.  Granted this appreciation is primarily gustatory in nature, but it's something. 

The ABA would like to with you and yours a happy and healthy day full of friends, family, and winter finches.

 

 

For those looking for some turkey-related reading this holiday, please head over to 10,000 Birds, where Greg Laden offers a fascinating overview of how this wild bird became domesticated and then wild again.  It's a good read.

Happy Holiday!

    As one of your ABA board members, I would like to take this moment to thank all of our members. You are very important to us.

    I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and a Joyous holiday season with many birds. I hope you are doing a CBC.

    Robin,

    As a member residing in the northern half of the ABA Area, just thought I should inform you that Thanksgiving this year was not today, but was actually on October 8th!

  • Alan, I believe that’s why the post specifically says, “at least in the United States”. Next October you should write a post about Canadian Thanksgiving.

    Michael, I was commenting on Robin Leong’s post. Please read it again very carefully!
