Birdboy in the news

WildBird's Birdboy columnist, Noah Strycker, recently received some newspaper coverage in The Register-Guard. Well done, Noah!

An excerpt:
He remembers driving along a southeastern Oregon highway at 70 mph in 2003, the year he graduated from South Eugene High School, “and out of the corner of my eye I see this weird-shaped bird.” Strycker had seen photographs of a scissor- tailed flycatcher before, but could that really be the Oklahoma state bird sitting on that power line? He made a U-turn, came back and took a photograph. Then he posted it online and birders began to flock, so to speak, from all over the state to see a bird that normally goes no farther west than Colorado and had only been sighted in Oregon maybe 10 times.
