Birding in the Indianapolis Star

Last week I received a phone call from a reporter with the Indianapolis Star. It turned out that he was doing an article on Christmas Bird Counts and competitive birding and someone had recommended that he talk to me about competitive birding. As excited as I was to talk with him and have a story about birding appear in the paper, I have to admit that I was a little hesitant at first mainly based on some horror stories that I had heard from birders about being completely miss quoted by reporters. I decided to be interview anyway and I am very glad I did. The article turned out great and I was very pleased with the section that included my interview.

Do any of you have any highlights from your competitive birding experiences?
