Edinburg Scenic Wetlands, 2/7/10

I headed over to Edinburg Scenic Wetlands this morning to look for the Northern Flicker that has been present the past few weeks. I couldn't find it but was happy to find only my second-ever-for-Hidalgo County Field Sparrow.

Great Blog, I've put a link on my ST Margaret's photo diary blog (Kent, UK).

Dear Antshrike -

Apologies for leaving a comment as a way to reach you. This is obviously not for public consumption and I hope you will get back to me privately.

I am writing today from Princeton University Press. I have just visited your birding blog and would like to alert you from time to time of new field guides and books we are publishing. We specialize in international books as well as American guides. For example, we recently published the Small/Sterry guides -- Birds of Eastern (or Western) North America: A Photographic Guide -- and we will soon release new and highly anticipated editions of BIRDS OF EUROPE and BIRDS OF PERU. We will also publish the incredible, game-changing ID Guides by Richard Crossley in 2011.

What I would like to do is add you to our media database so we can alert you to new titles like these and occasionally send you review copies for your personal use and for review on your blog.

Please let me know what mailing address we should use or if we should continue to contact you via email.

Thank you so much,
