I did a little housekeeping on my blogroll, deleting links to a few blogs that hadn’t been updated in more than a year, updating links to others, and adding several A-list birding blogs whose creators/contributors I had the privilege of birding with this weekend. Enjoy!
When I wheedled and cajoled the nice folks at CMBO into letting me attend Autumn Weekend and The Bird Show, I was blissfully unaware that my blogger buddy Birdchick had been scheming since August to get all the attending bloggers together for the first-ever Bird Blogger Conference. And since some of us shyer types need the help of a social director, Sharon will also be hosting a “Birds and Beers” on Friday night, October 26, 2007 at 8pm at the Jackson Mountain Cafe.
My last (and also first) encounter with the Birdchick was at the 2005 ABA convention in Tucson, where she was blogging from a couch in the lobby of the Doubletree Hotel. Unfortunately, she had to leave the convention early and missed the wild karaoke party at the Javelina Cantina. No excuses this time, not if I have anything to say about it. And since I broke down and invested in a new laptop with wireless Internet capability, maybe I’ll follow Sharon’s example and blog during brief breaks from the Cape May festivities.
