Serv it Up

I subscribe to a bird watch list serv run by our state’s ornithology chapter.  It provides birders a place to share locations of interesting birds for the rest of the list serv members. The Fall/Winter that the Snowy Owl locations dipped down further South than they had been in centuries, was a particularly great year to be using the list serv.

I do a lot of birding, but it is ducks that I really love to find and watch. Recently, I had a lifer – a bird type first seen and positively identified – to add to my life list of birds.  Cinnamon Teal. Unfortunately, I do not have a nice enough camera to justify posting a picture here.  Therefore, enjoy this photo taken be Joan Gellatly.

I quickly knew from posts on the list serv where to go to try and see this Teal. It worked like a charm.
