• This week's rarities include a Great Knot and Cook's Petrel in WA, a Common Swift in NJ, Black Rosy-Finch in MN, Yellow-headed Caracara in CA, Yellow Grosbeak in CO, and a White-winged Tern in MI.

  • The ambitions, egos, and adventure surrounding 18th and 19th century American ornithology affect birding and bird study to this day. We welcome author, artist, and naturalist Kenn Kaufman, who has tackled this fascinating period in a new book The Birds that Audubon Missed: Discovery and Desire in the American Wilderness, looking at John James Audubon, Alexander Wilson, and their peers through the lens of the common and widespread birds they did not find and describe, rather than the many many that they did.
