    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".

    Michael Retter
    Michael L. P. Retter is the editor of the ABA's newest magazine, Birder's Guide. He also wears his ABA cap while working as a Technical Reviewer for Birding magazine. When not at home, Michael is often leading tours in Middle America (Mexico through Panama). He currently lives with his partner, Matt, in West Lafayette, Indiana. In his fleeting free time there, he pursues interests in horticulture (especially orchids), music, cooking, and numismatics. Michael also runs GBNA, the continent's informal club and email listserv for LGBT birders.
    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.

    • Open Mic: 2014 Camp Avocet–an intern’s perspective October 13, 2014 5:38
      I don’t think there is any doubt in anyone’s mind that Camp Avocet was totally, undeniably awesome this year, so I won’t spend too long telling you all that. In mid-August 2014, a committed staff and a crew of very enthusiastic and almost unbelievably skilled campers assembled in Lewes, in southern Delaware, for the second […]

    • Book Review: Petrels, Albatrosses, and Storm-Petrels of North America October 1, 2014 12:36
      Tubenoses - well-adapted birds that spend most of their lives soaring over the open ocean - are shrouded in more mystery than any other group of birds. Not only are their habitats so inaccessible, but distinguishing between cryptic species makes them a true frontier for ornithologists and birders alike. […]
