IVORY-BILLS  LiVE???!  ...

=> THE blog devoted to news and commentary on the most iconic bird in American ornithology, the Ivory-billed Woodpecker (IBWO)... and... sometimes other schtuff.

-- Thanksgiving 2011 --


In some prior years I've posted a Top 10 list of things I'm thankful for around Thanksgiving. At the last minute I decided to do one for this year:

1) The O
ccupy movement and what it represents

2) Apple Computer and Steve Jobs' inspiring legacy

3) Taylor Swift ('cuz her music never fails to perk me up)

4) All those working on behalf of conservation in spite of the obstacles

5) the plethora of bird blogs and websites that have augmented the hobby of birding, taking it to a whole new level

6) Bill Pulliam's independence of thought and approach

7) Childhood intuition (may you never lose it)

8) Owls, raptors, Pileated Woodpeckers, hummingbirds, penguins, parrots, and other species that never fail to make my day

9) Mike Collins' persistent doggedness

10) Crocs (the shoes, not the reptiles)

In this economy, I should probably also mention having a job and a paycheck, as well (…at least for now)!

A Happy Holiday to all the readers here!
