When I began this blog I added a link to a fascinating weblog named "Birding Babylon". It was the journal of a birding serving in the military in Iraq. The author has since returned home and written a book about his experience. The Linnaean Society of New York is hosting him as a speaker at the American Museum of Natural History. It should be very interesting:
