ABA Bird of the Year: Evening Grosbeak

Last night, Jeff Gordon, president of the American Birding Association, announced the 2012 ABA Bird of the Year: the Evening Grosbeak, a bird I have yet to see. To read more about the Evening Grosbeak visit the ABA Bird of the Year page. The artwork on this month’s cover of “Birding” magazine and on the stickers are from the very talented artist Julie Zickefoose. Here is the cover,

and here is a sticker,

Here is a great video of Mr. Gordon revealing of the Bird of the Year,

This afternoon with my mother’s help (in other words, her credit card) I joined the ABA. I can’t wait for my first issues of “Winging It” and “Birding” magazine with the Evening Grosbeak stickers, which I going to put on my binoculars.
