This event took place in April of 1870, in Lafayette Park in St. Louis. Nevertheless, a life bird is a life bird and it would take a lot more than three confounding factors to make me drive away from St. Louis without putting in a sporting effort to get this one.

What is a Cardinal?

10,000 Birds

When it comes to cardinals and sports, the first and foremost organization to come to mind has to be baseball’s St. Louis Cardinals , and not just because they’re Corey’s favorite team. The St. Louis Cardinals is one of the winningest (this is a real word in the sports world) franchises in all of baseball in terms of World Series crowns, second only to the storied New York Yankees. However, in their migrations from Chicago to St.

The Arizona Cardinals may not be covering the team totem in glory, but the St. Louis Cardinals just locked in another trip to the World Series. When citizens of the United States tout the superiority of our country, we tend to focus on debatable issues of culture, economy, and government. However, if we’re being fair, one of the irrefutable elements that makes America great is our proliferation of Northern Cardinals.

“Dog Days and Poisons” – Collective Arts Brewing: Mash Up the Jam

10,000 Birds

I suspect this will be the first and last time we’ll see a beer featuring this species, an introduced Old-World songbird best known in North America from its St. Louis, Missouri population. That is, unless some St. Louis brewery decides to put the city’s best-known invasive on a can of beer. Drinking is an act of risk and vulnerability, though it’s such an everyday part of our existence that no one thinks of it that way.

Birding Vignettes from a Camping Trip

My bright red St. Louis Cardinals hat. Last week, from Saturday to Monday (15-17 July), we did our annual camping trip with some friends. This year we tried out Mongaup Pond Campground, a state park in the Catskills in Sullivan County. It’s a pretty park, not far off Route 17, but surrounded by miles of forest. And though it was not a birding trip we were out in the woods all day every day so of course I saw some birds.

10,000 Birds

Marty St Louis – Manager at Summer Lake NWR, Summer Lake Oregon. We have arrived at the end of our little adventure, which has come to be known as “The Little Big Year”. It ended with little fan fare; in fact I did not even go chasing birds on the last two days of 2018, as I am just plain tired. Not of the birds, but the seemingly endless early mornings, rarely sleeping in my own bed, and the pressure, mostly self imposed, to find yet one more bird.

The Catbird Seat

10,000 Birds

As a kid and teenager, I’d listen to the St. Louis Cardinals on the radio in Ozark, Missouri. Here in the southeast we have three Mimids of three distinct groups all present more or less throughout the year. The Northern Mockingbird is easily the most famous, celebrated in classic literature and song and deemed notable enough to have the honor of being the official state bird of five southern states.
