hello tweeties,

it's been a little while since i've shared links to the mystery birds, but i've been diligently publishing them every morning nevertheless. the most recently demystified mystery bird, courtesy of Joseph Kennedy, was an Attwater's Prairie Chicken, Tympanuchus cupido attwateri;


and today's mystery bird, courtesy of Richard Ditch, can be viewed here;


i also wanted to share my story about what it is like to be traveling internationally and suffer an injury that requires surgery -- something that all birders and travelers probably think about -- and certainly SHOULD think about, even if it does not become reality;


OpenLab2008, a compilation of the best science, nature and medical writing in the blogosphere during 2008 has just been published and you might be interested to purchase this book (this includes a link to my essay that was included in this compilation -- only 50 out of 830+ essays were chosen for this book);


and last but not least, i want to share two of the many, many stunning images i've captured while visiting gorgeous, glorious Finland (these are all raw image files);
