When I was a fledgling birder (I think I still am, though), there was a blog carnival called I and the Bird.  I started off reading and commenting and eventually got brave enough to submit my own posts to the carnival and, in time, to host the carnival.  I loved it and knowing it was out there pushed me as a birder.

But all good things must come to an end and eventually so did I and the Bird.

It was sad but I totally understood.

Imagine my delight when I realized that it was back!

Here is the current issue of I and the Bird - Cormorants and Darters.  Somehow I missed the previous edition on Nuthatches, dur!

You can check out my post that was included but also check out the other posts about these cool, fishing birds.

It's Friday!  Learn something new!


  1. I never thought much of 'runts. They looked greasy and unkempt, but I didn't wish them any harm. And then I saw a whole seastack full of Brandt's Cormorants flapping their bright turquoise wattles and I thought there, but for lack of a fancy turquoise, flap I.

    1. Murr, I'm sure we could find some turquoise glitter to make your wattles sparkle if that's really what you want! It would be a look!
