Year of the Bird

We’ve been mostly stay-at-homes this year.  During our stopover at the Eagle Center I noticed a poster about “2018 is the Year of the Bird.” I feel stupid because this is November and I’m just learning about it now.  So, I figured I’d pass along some information — in part because there’s a really good source about birding to be discovered.
