A quick summary on the event - The Superbowl of Birding is an annual competition, similar to New Jersey's World Series of Birding, but with a few important differences. The main differences are that it takes place in New England in the heart of winter and is only a 12 hour competition, starting at 5am and going until 5pm. Visit the link to learn more.

Even though I have not spent a lot of time with Christopher in the field, my first impression was a positive one as I observed him rescuing a birder who was faltering in the mud on the East Pond at Jamaica Bay NY. The next time I saw him was during last year's Super Bowl. While Christopher's birding revolves around New England, he also travels for birds and shares his photography with his readers on his blog and on Facebook. So if you want to look at some excellent photography from New England and beyond, head over to Picus Blog. If you visit his blog, you will also meet another member of the team as Christopher will be introducing Corey Finger. Oh and here is another tidbit about Christopher, he is a fanatic about Woodpeckers. But then you knew that...given the name of his blog...right? Check back for more on the Bloggerhead Kingbirds as we gear up for competition day!!
