[va-bird] Re: New Bird found in South America

Every bit as enjoyable as a new bird species is that the birds were released 
unharmed: "This is the first time a live specimen has been used for a 
description of a new bird species." 

What a difference a century makes. This link to a tawdry tale of fowl behaviour 
was found on birdingonthe.net

Oh, 5-6 Common Nighthawks were flying SSW this evening, yard bird #70 was 
Golden-crowned Kinglet yesterday.

Good birding,
