Dorothy Borders of the Backyard Birder
blog recently posted an entry entitled "Checking out the competition
," wherein she reviews some of her favorite blogs about birds and birding. I was very flattered to find Birds Etcetera
mentioned prominently among some of the leading luminaries of the bird-blogging world. Here’s an excerpt:
A couple of the top blogs on my list of favorites are by two Johns. The first one is A DC Birding Blog that addresses both local DC as well as national and international birding news. He has an entry on the Ivory-billed story also.
John Trapp of West Virginia writes the second blog. It's called Birds Etcetera AKA Bird Stuff. He's a good writer and always an enjoyable read and, like the other John, he pretty much covers the universe of birding [emphasis added].
Thank you, Dorothy, for this unsolicited (I swear!) flattery; my high school English teacher would be proud. I hope that I can live up to the billing.
