Full-length, full-color Dec. Winging It online now!

TBPA2Black-and-white hard copies of Winging It are now arriving in the mailboxes of ABA members. Within, you'll find an informative feature article by Jeff Skrentny that attempts to answer many of the "countability" questions we here at ABA are often asked about by our members, such as "Can I count the Monk Parakeets in Chicago?" and "Can I count the Thick-billed Parrot (at right) I saw in New Mexico in 2003?" The answers are not always what you'd think! Board member Mike Bowen announces the 2012 recipients of the ABA Awards. Scott Olmstead pens an article about how ecotourism is spreading in Ecuador, and how Birders' Exchange is fostering the movement. Mark Cocker gives a thorough review of two interesting new books, Bird Sense and What the Robin Knows. These articles all have one important thing in common: you only get to see part of them (and in black-and-white) in the printed version. The whole story, literally, is only available online.

In the full-length, full-color, online version you'll also find the high-quality Winging It regulars you've come to expect: Amy Davis's "Sightings", Paul Hess's "News and Notes", Bill Schmoker's "Geared for Birding", and Rick Wright's "Fowl Language".

  • Open Mice: Kestrels–An Iowa Legacy May 16, 2017 6:29
    A few years ago, a short drive down my gravel road would yield at least one, if not two, American Kestrels perched on a power line or hovering mid-air above the grassy ditch. Today, I have begun to count myself lucky to drive past a mere one kestrel per week rather than the daily sightings. […]
