The announcement of the 2013 BOY is imminent. Check back Monday morning, January 7th, for the official announcement!

The era of the Evening Grosbeak, a singularly worthy Bird of the Year for 2012, is drawing to a close.  And though it pains us to give that noble finch a shortened reign, we’re putting all future Bird of the Year announcements on the traditional calendar from here on out.

Which means the announcement of the 2013 BOY is imminent.  

Check back Monday morning, January 7th, for the official announcement!

Robert Mortensen

Robert is most widely known as the host of www.BirdingIsFun.com, a multi-author blog sharing enthusiasm for birds and birding. He is also the ABA's Bird of the Year program coordinator. Robert began birding in the summer of 2004 when his father-in-law handed him a pair of binoculars to go on a Sunday afternoon walk at Deer Flat Wildlife Refuge in Idaho. Birding was an instant addiction. Married to Jessica since 1999, they have four children that keep them hopping. They live in Bountiful, Utah adjacent to spectacular birding at parks and refuges on the eastern shore of the Great Salt Lake. Robert earned his degree in Construction Management from Brigham Young University and somehow fits his construction career around his birding. He is a "well-rounded nerd" who enjoys adventures with his family, serving in his church and Boy Scouts of America, family history, music, and an avid college football fan. Robert plays clarinet and saxophone and enjoys singing too. For question about the Bird of the Year program, you can reach Robert at [email protected]
