RGV: media coverage

As a journalist, I like to see if the local media pick up on the influx of birders--and their disposable income--during festivals. The Brownsville Herald published articles about field trips that took place on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

I'm tempted to send a field guide to the newsroom so that the reporters and copy editors can double-check the species names before sending the copy to the printing press or hitting the Publish button on their computer monitors ;) And then there's the matter of double-checking the spelling of sources' names and birding jargon!

Oh! You are SUCH a sticklah!

That's not misspelled, that's phonetic.
