Stuck Inside, Pining


I was inside all day today (and will be all day tomorrow) at a convention center near the Atlanta Airport at the BirdWatch America Show. This trade show for the wild bird industry is where lots of vendors come to try to sell their products to lots of wild bird stores.

All day I was talking to people about bird stuff, new products, trends, ideas, mergers and acquisitions, and so on. I enjoyed it but would have been overjoyed to have been birding outside, instead.

I did see a small sharp-shinned hawk as we entered the trade show POD today. That and a song sparrow were the extent of my day's bird list. Kind of ironic given the focus of this trade show on actual wild birds.
