Today was my birthday, but contrary to previous years, I didn't bird today and as result didn't have any good birds for my B-day. But it was a good day nevertheless. I attended the Annual Ringiers Conference that was held at the JBO. Apart for listening to fascinating presentations, and participating in productive discussions about the future of ringing in Israel, it was great to meet all the guys (young and not so young).
I will be away from my computer for the whole of next week. Traditionally, whenever I disappear like this, especially in late October, some megas arrive. Who knows what happens this year.
