'Birds of the West Indies' in Action!
Charlie Quinn shared this terrific shot of the endemic Barbados Bullfinch getting ready to peruse James Bond's classic Birds of the West Indies. In Barbados. Thanks, Charlie!
You can read more about this smart bird here:
I love what Bond wrote in the fifth edition: "remarkably tame in gardens of Barbados."
(I'll be giving away a free copy of this edition at my talk on Tuesday at the Ridgewood Public Library).
