Connie Kogler, whom WildBird readers voted the 2008 Birder of the Year (see here), received more press recently. The Loveland Reporter-Herald carried this article
over the weekend:
When she spotted a rare bird in her yard in December 2007, Connie Kogler didn’t hesitate to share.
Nearly 500 people from many states — strangers to Kogler and her husband — crowded inside her Loveland home over four weeks to feast their eyes on a streak-backed oriole, the first ever spotted in Colorado.
Even when she wasn’t home, Kogler still opened her living room to fellow bird lovers.
Now those and many other birders have honored Kogler by voting her WildBird magazine’s 2008 birder of the year.
Koger is featured in the March/April edition of the national magazine, and she won a trip for two to Costa Rica with bird experts.
At the hyperlink above, you'll find details about Connie's contribution this Saturday to the upcoming Great Backyard Bird Count as well as a link to her blog.
