Warblers that Warble

10,000 Birds

I have commented before in my posts that most of our Warblers here in central Mexico never actually warble. This tendency is so marked that the Spanish name for Wood Warblers, Chipe, comes not from their mating songs, but from their typical feeding calls: cheep… cheep… cheep.

Gray Hawk from the House

10,000 Birds

Every place has its hawk. At least it seems that way. A generalist raptor that can keep on living in a human dominated landscape. These are the neighborhood raptors that make do, even thrive, by preying on the wildlife of an urban landscape.

In late July, I travelled a half hour north of Morelia to Lake Cuitzeo (kweet-SAY-oh) to see if our two inevitable first migratory species from up north, Baird’s Sandpiper and Wilson’s Phalarope, had begun arriving.

Emerging birding destinations: Serbia

10,000 Birds

The coronavirus has locked us all in, literally, doing something that was totally unthinkable only a few months ago: it has prevented us from birding abroad! And now we are all dreaming about new destinations to explore, once airports are working again and borders re-open.

Chats

I’m guessing that most people these days communicate on social media through one or more chats. I myself am on several. But only birders know that you can communicate on a chat about… Chats.

Best Bird of the Weekend (Second of September 2020)

10,000 Birds

September is a classic shoulder season, not yet finished with what has passed but still subtly teasing what is to come. Change is good, particularly because it always brings new birds.

Birding without a phone

10,000 Birds

If you are old enough, you will remember birding without a phone? Not too long ago, it was the norm. Then I started to carry a phone just in case my car stopped or something. Later I carried it because of a stash of bird songs I compiled in it.

Any time of year that features skies filled with birds pretty much all day demands attention pretty much all day. If your neck is sore from being on a swivel this weekend, may I suggest swiveling with your hips to get through the rest of the month?

The ABA Area and Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

10,000 Birds

The third anniversary of Hurricane Maria barreling its way through Puerto Rico was a few weeks ago. In the aftermath of Maria, I had wondered why both Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands were not part of the ABA Area. After all, both are U.S. territories and their residents are U.S. citizens.

eBird and Urban Planning: City Green Spaces

10,000 Birds

Birders who submit their checklists to eBird likely know that their data may be used to conduct research on avian migration, range, or population. But eBird data is not just for ecologists and ornithologists. It has also been used by researchers from other fields, such as economists.

Bitternsweet Moments

I promise this will be the last article (for a while at least) on this wetland that’s so close to where I live. Truth is, we’ve been getting so many migrants passing through that there hasn’t been much of a need to bird elsewhere.
