What I found really interesting was Rachel Farrel's take. She seemed to think that Jeremiah was silly for jumping the gun and posting to Massbird. I would have posted to every site if I hadn't been beaten to it. I was beside myself with excitement. Ironic that Mark Barriger posted it on CTBirds? I was tempted to email him about how pathetic it was to make up a report (imagine how foolish that person made you feel, etc.) - didn't have the heart.
I am about to go apeshit on RI. I applaud your guts on calling them out, Nick. I am afraid to offend, but I am not sure what I would lose out on if I called the assholes assholes. Am I an "asshole-birder enabler" with my silence. Nick, you never told me if Rachel got back to you about the Mew Gull.
