So I've worked all day, actually the last two days, on a keynote talk about warbler biology. About how migration and the seasonal switch from tropics to temperate zones affects them; about their physiognomy as relates to their foraging strategy. Did you know that black-and-white warblers have a really long hallux? (hind toe). Do you know why? Well, I'm holding those cards close to my chest. The talk is chock-full of gorgeous images of warblers flitting and gleaning and singing. I'll be delivering said talk on Saturday, June 3, at the Holden Arboretum near Cleveland, Ohio. And I would like to see you there, if you're anywhere near. Please check out this link and come join us. There will be fabulous field trips led by me and peerless guide and scopeman Bill of the Birds, terrific plants and flowers; everything to make anyone who loves nature completely happy. So book your flights from Hamburg and the Philippines now! Or drive on over from Sandusky. I'd love to meet you and fill you full of warbler trivia.
