Take a trip over there to learn, among other things, about those hard-to-figure-out little brown birds called sparrows from Pamela Martin in Thomasburg, Ontario. And also about the slow-but-sure recovery of the California condor from Jason at Beakspeak.
My own experience with sparrows is probably typical of (bad) birdwatchers. I'm good at picking out Chipping Sparrows, since they swarm our backyard feeders in the winter, but everything else is a blur. Except for Lark Sparrows, of course, but they are special, and I don't get to see them very frequently. (And never in my backyard, alas.)
As for condors, I've never seen one. Back when I lived in southern California, the recovery program was just starting to re-release them into the wild. And I was totally ignorant of birds at the time. But I have been following their recovery ever since that time, and hope to get a chance to see one the next time I'm out West. That may be a while, unfortunately.
What is definite, though, is that this blog has the honor of hosting the third edition of I and the Bird in two weeks. So, as Charlie says, send your submissions to either Mike of 10,000 Birds or me by Tuesday, August 2nd.
