CUPPER SUPPER: Don't forget to mark your calendar for the 3rd Annual Cupper Supper! February 28,  antics starting at 5pm.  Bring a dish to pass (if you all bring desserts, so be it!) We'll have  wine and soft drinks as usual, but we don't dare supply the beer, what with the likes of connoisseur Kevin McGowan roaming the premises. We also encourage you to save the world by bringing your own reusable eating utensils. We'll be awarding fabulous prizes, they'll be lots of good music, and  we may be able to coherse Ken Rosenberg into a table dance or two...or maybe not. Meanwhile,  to help with the foolishness, please send responses to the following question to amw25@cornell.edu:

You know you're a birder if ...  
(Example: You know you're a birder if your idea of a dream vacation is to a parasite-infested,  hot, rainy tropical forest.)

COUNT FOR THE BIRDS: This weekend (Feb 19-22) is the 2nd Annual Backyard Bird Count! What  better way to get your yard totals up than by participating? Everything you need to know  is at the web site <http:birdsource.cornell.edu>. We'll be looking for your read dot...

Last year's birding sensation, Matt Young, promised that he was going to take it easy this year.  Sure, Matt.  So where do we find Matt at the end of January but at the top of the leaderboard, with a new record total for the month.  Suddenly, 100 birds in January doesn't seem so impossible after all.  Throw in a few winter finches, two or three more owls, and a couple of odd birds that Matt missed, and Kurt Fox doesn't seem so crazy after all.

McIlroy Award

Compiled by Matt Medler

Stop me if you've heard this one before--Bill Evans jumps out to a big McIlroy total in January, starts talking some trash, and then leaves the Basin.  He is to be commended for setting what he claims is the new McIlroy record for the month.  But as I try to tell greenhorn Matt Sarver, it's not about the January total, or the February total, or even the November total. This is a marathon.  Let's see where Bill ends up come December 31.
