Birding Serbia in the 2020

10,000 Birds

As the year is closing, I am looking back to realise, despite it being such an awful year, it’s far from the worst I had, it doesn’t even come close (it’s the mileage that’s killing me, I guess).

What Was Your First Bird of 2021?

10,000 Birds

It’s 2021! What was your first bird of the year? Hopefully it will start off a year with vaccines for all and a beginning of a return to normalcy. This year, 2021, has to be better than the dumpster fire that was 2020, right? Happy New Year to you from the 10,000 Birds crew!

Of Tree I Sing

10,000 Birds

As anyone who knows quality photography can tell, I am not the sort of birder who tends to stay in one place for long. There are no photographic hides or tripods for me.

Best Bird of the Weekend (Last of 2020)

10,000 Birds

2020 is almost over… finally. Rather than belabor the obvious, I’ll just point out that the global pandemic may have spawned a new wave of birders, but collectively we’ve seen far fewer species of birds.

Where Are You Birding This First Weekend of 2021?

10,000 Birds

Has the dawning of a new year ever felt as glorious as this one? Not only do we symbolically leave the horrors of 2020 behind us, but we just as symbolically wipe clean our year list to refresh our appreciation of even our most common birds.

Our Best Birds of 2020

10,000 Birds

2020 will be remembered as a year that we’d like to forget. COVID-19 was the worst of it but we also endured horrific wildfires, tremendously damaging hurricanes, another year of the worst President of the United States in history, and the list could go on ad infinitum.
