    We’re at Space Coast! Come check out our new stickers!

    Space Coast Birding and Nature Festival starts tomorrow! And the ABA is excited to have a presence there on the trade show floor and out in the field. If you’re planning on attending Florida’s best known bird festival, please be sure to stop by the ABA lounge and say hello to Jeff and Liz Gordon, John Puschock, or myself as we make the rounds at the many birding hotspots around Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge!

    ABA logo newAnd just to further tempt you, we’re debuting a brand new sticker logo at Space Coast (and, well, here at the blog too).  Check it out at left!

    New stickers will be available for a special Space Coast price of $1.  We’ll also be giving away new Common Nighthawk Bird of the Year stickers you can slap on your binoculars, scopes, cell phones, laptops, guitar cases, or any other dry semi-smooth surface you can possibly think of.

    We’ll also be selling ABA logo wear including hats, shirts, and beanies.  It may be 80 degrees and sunny in Florida, but the fleece beanie is stylish in any weather, even if it’s not comfortable in any weather. We can also answer questions, renew your membership, sign you up for membership, or just graciously accept your well-wishes.  Fair warning, you may end up on the blog at some point.

    So if you’re going to be at Space Coast Birding and Nature Festival this week, please stop by and say hello.   We’d love to meet you and thank you personally for your support of this organization, your organization.

    Hope to see you there!

    The ABA is proud to be a Panther level supporter of the Space Coast Birding and Nature Festival

      Nate,
      Are the ABA stickers available with the adhesive on the back as well?

    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.

      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. […]

      My week at Camp Colorado started off a few hours behind schedule. After my brother and I boarded our plane, we learned that the plane had a broken seal, and would not be flying us to Denver. We switched planes and got about an hour and a half out, when an elderly woman’s medical emergency […]
