The hardest thing about any Big Day
If you haven't guessed the hardest part of a Big Day is staying mentally and physically sharp throughout the 24 hour gauntlet. As elegantly depicted by Eric in the photo above this can be grueling for even seasoned World Series of Birding members. So how do the Lagerhead Shrikes coupe with sleep deprivation? Well each member has his own strategy some stick to coffee and soda, others put down enough energy drinks to wake the dead, and some commit the cardinal sin of sleeping during the ride south. However, after each World Series of Birding the Lagerhead Shrikes stay true to their name and enjoy a few cold ones before dozing off.
