Back to the Superbowl of Birding

Yes folks, you heard right - the Bloggerhead Kingbirds are going back to the Superbowl of Birding. If you're from New England, or have followed this blog for any period of time, you might know about this birding competition.  And if not, they click the link above for the MassAudubon's competition home page. (And heck, if you've got time and the brass cojones to pull a team together we wouldn't mind another team on the playing field to beat - though I warn you, brass can get mighty cold in these parts in late January.)

This will mark the third year where I will be captain of a team of bird bloggers - all of whom really ought to be familiar to you - and if not, than you should most definitely follow the ring of introductions that we are doing. (Actually, you should follow the links from each of my teammates no matter what, because honestly, I've had a sneak peak at some of what these guys are writing, and they are some very *witty guys... which make me wonder why I am still allowed to be counted among them)

Next up, the one, the only (thank god) Corey of 10,000 Birds fame!  As an original member of the Bloggerhead Kingbirds, Corey will be returning for his third year of punishment competition in whatever weather New England feels fit to throw at us.  His drive to compete and win is something astounding - as well as his Barred Owl, which you know if you ever heard it. (And believe me, birds several counties away can hear it when he does!)

(And in case you happened to stumble upon my blog first - do make sure to visit Andrew also)

PS - I want to also give a shout out to Amy and Arthur over at Birdorable.com who generously designed the team logo for us a few years ago - still lovin' that logo!!! When you're done reading the team posts, go over to their site and show them some love. Buy a shirt, hat, something with your favorite bird on it.
