I like tracking the newspaper articles or online news stories that mention birders. The short announcements of an upcoming bird walk or presentation, printed in a small community paper, are nice, but the articles about larger events in mainstream news sources give me hope.
The more often that larger outlets mention birders, the better. With more of a presence in this nation, maybe birders and birding will seem like less of a quirky subculture (or not).
