I am sitting in the San Francisco airport at 5 am (let the sleep deprivation begin) waiting to board my plane to New Jersey for the 28th annual World Series of Birding. I can't wait to get out into the field and find birds. But more importantly I can't wait to re-unite with all the other WSB participants. The week of scouting provides ample time to catchup with old friends and make a few new ones along the way. The plane is now boarding, time to go!!!
