We are not reading as much as catching up on data. We are compiling rarity data for the Lower Columbia Basin and uploading historic data to eBird. It does pass the time.

I'm about halfway through "The Search for the Pink Headed Duck" by Rory Nugent, in which the author describes his adventures in India searching for this species which hadn't been been sighted for several decades and was possibly extinct. It's actually more about his adventures than birds, but is still a fun read. It was originally published back in 1991 but was reissued in 2011 (self-published, I believe).

I find myself with less than 2 weeks to convert three courses into an online format (I teach Anthropology at a community college) and then master presenting them, so am going a bit batty.
