Thread subject: HBO New Documentary
||06/11/12 06:12 am
||Thought I would give a heads up regarding a Documentary HBO will be presenting on July 16th 9pm. Its named the "Central Park Effect". "The Central Park Effect' focuses on the array of migrating birds who visit the park as well as some of the birders who go out of their way to observe them. "

||I wonder if we will see it up here in Toronto. I will have to do some homework and see if I can find it. Thanks, Celeste.

||Thanks for the heads up Celeste, I put it on my calendar.

||Twitcher: A birder in all the good sense of the term during normal times, but responds with frenzied activity to news of rarities in his region, and will spend large amounts of money and travel long distances at short notice in order to see a rarity or new bird.
Ticker (aka Lister): A person whose prime focus in birding is the compilation of his lifelist, generally in a competitive way. Has very little interest in spending more than a few moments with the bird, and once seen, shows little desire to see the bird ever again.
Stringer: A birder who has built up a reputation in birding circles for identifying birds incorrectly, in particular with regard to claims of rarities.

||I don't get HBO but this looks good!
I could be a mini-Twitcher. I haven't yet taken to going long distances to get a new bird. Yet!

||I'm a twitcher wannabe - I know people who call in for a day off and drive several hundred miles at the drop of a vagrant feather and I freely admit envying their flexibility.
I wonder what the opposite of a Ticker is? I know - a Featherhead!!!!!
