ABA Flight Calls #110 – Field Trip Opportunity to St. Paul

Rarity Hunting in St. Paul, Alaska!
September 28-October 5

We’re putting the finishing touches on one of the most exciting trips we have planned for 2014, and there’s just enough time for you to join us. We’re heading out to far-flung St. Paul Island from September 28-October 5, known far and wide as one of the finest spot for vagrants in the ABA Area. And we’d love for you to come along.
It’s jackpot birding with the ABA! You never know what you might find in western Alaska in the fall, but on St. Paul the odds are pretty good that it will be something spectacular. In recent years birders have come across Pine Bunting, Rufous-tailed Robin, Willow Warbler, and last year’s ABA Area first Common Redstart, one of more than two dozen ABA firsts to which St. Paul can lay claim.

What will we find this year? Who knows, but it could mean this year’s trip is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity you won’t want to miss.

Join ABA Blog editor Nate Swick and a group of skilled local guides for a unique birding experience in the far reaches of North America.

For more information on this and other ABA events, see our comprehensive events website. We hope you’ll join us soon!

Get Your Limited Edition Bird of the Year T-shirt!
Rufous Hummingbirds are starting their slow journey south, making their presence known as they chase off all comers to hummingbird feeders across the west. It’s an appropriate time to, once again, bring the 2014 ABA Bird of the Year back front and center.

To that end, we’re really excited to offer a brand-new limited edition t-shirt, designed by Toronto-based graphic artists Paul Riss (an ABA member) and Rachel Riorden, both of PRBY Apparel, and featuring the 2014 Bird of the Year, Rufous Hummingbird.

The shirt is distributed by the excellent custom printing service, Fed By Threads. A small amount of the proceeds go to the ABA and another portion is donated to local and national hunger relief groups. So not only will your purchase help some worthy organizations, but you’ll be getting a cool bird t-shirt besides.

Check it out! Spread the word! We’d love to see as many people as possible wearing the Rufous Hummingbird this fall!
