A lifer I need to get THIS YEAR

Today the American Birding Association (ABA) announced their Bird of the Year for 2012: the Evening Grosbeak. If you need a laugh please check out the wonderfully goofy video in the ABA blog post announcing the reign of the Evening Grosbeak.

I have somewhat mixed feelings about this choice, as I do not have this species on my life list and I don’t have much of a chance of getting it here in my home state! This might call for a road trip… Meanwhile my bins will be sporting the spiffy new ABA BoY sticker. I’m gonna spread the word while enjoying the birds! 😀

Share the birds, share the love!

  1. Thanks for the ABA shout out, Amy!

    Anytime you and Arthur want to come out to Colorado, you’ve got a place to stay and free Evening Grosbeak guide service.

    I know you guys could use a break from the summer heat. Just give yourself a day or two to acclimate…there’s a lot less air up here!
