10,000 Birds Beat Writers

by Larry on November 1, 2010

I am honored to be one of the new Beat Writers on the preeminent birding blog on the internet, 10,000 Birds.  How did I get invited to join such an august group of birders and bird bloggers?  Good question.

I know.  It seems far fetched doesn’t it?  Larry Jordan being included with names like Julie Zickefoose and Bill Thompson, III.  I could claim I don’t know how it happened but I do know.  I’m just not telling ;-)  I will not be letting THAT bird out of the bag.

All kidding aside though, I am looking forward to expanding my reach on conservation issues and letting more people know about the great birding opportunities out here in the West.  My beat is the West Coast and I plan on bringing some of the best birding hot spots (as well as other issues) into focus for my fellow birders every other Wednesday starting November 10th as a 10,000 Birds Beat Writer.

Just check out the gaggle of Beat Writers Mike, Charlie and Corey have lined up for us:

I know, it’s a bit overwhelming but stick with me as we learn a heck of a lot about birding wherever we are on this tiny blue dot.  There is a whole new world waiting out there to explore.  Let’s get to it!

Larry: congratulations!

do you or any of your viewers have any tips for attracting birds to bird feeder?

just moved into home in hills in Northern Alabama. area has not had any feeders before. Put up feeders about 10 days ago and no action.

Any idea on how to “advertise’??

@Corey thanks! I look forward to giving your readers a West Coast perspective

@Mike your right. We have birds out west too! :-D

@Klaus thank you very much

@Jack I will send you some articles I wrote on attracting birds to your yard, but in the meantime, click on the “Bird Feeders” category near the top of the left side panel to find posts on the subject

Excellent Larry and congrats! Many good things are happening and are in the works this year. This is just another example, which should make for a great 2011.
