Wednesday, November 17, 2010

How Birders Are Made. Here is the only look you will get at your life magnolia warbler. This experience frustrates you sufficiently to keep you coming back, hoping for a better look. Which may or may not happen. Congratulations: You are a birder.

I like bird butts and I cannot lie! Not everyone knows it, but Sir Mix-A-Lot is a serious birder.

This was exactly my life experience with a Magnolia warbler, and I have the pictures to prove it.

And look at me now!

G'day Bill,

Your test results are back. Unfortunately it's not good news. It turns out your an obsessive Twitcher. The prognosis isn't favourable either as their no known cure.

I think we can all relate to this experience. I'm pretty sure I've had a look at all the warblers "butts" at one point or another.

Bill, I just had to pass your post through Facebook. It was too funny, and with my recent forray into posting my bird pictures, I felt it would help my friends understand my own "insanity" a little better.....if nothing else, they could laugh.

Thanks for a funny post,
