Spring bird migration tip #6

“If I want to see all the birds of the world I need to be rich.” Sorry this one is just true. Quit your job, book flights to circumnavigate the globe, and hire the best guides – yup you need to be rich. But finding 25 species of warblers in the middle of Cambridge, MA at Mt. Auburn Cemetery will run you $2.00 to ride the #71 or #73 bus from Harvard Square and an old pair of binoculars.
