For those who may have missed it, Nancy Morrison wrote a reflection on
being host to the Red-flanked Bluetail and rarity chasers last winter,
which should be required reading for all of us who love to see these
amazing rare birds.
It's in the latest issue of WOS News (#199), available here:
Also in the issue is my vision for the publication's next era. Would love
any input, ideas, questions.
For what it's worth I like the idea of raising money for charity at
stakeouts -; but also like the idea of giving the money directly to the
homeowners to improve their yards for birds. This may make a good
investigative piece for WOS News, to see how it is done elsewhere.
