Time to crown our first-ever champion!!!!!!
The NYT is reporting from an anonymous source in the FBI that an investigation has been opened regarding foreign bots voting in the final round. I'll be on MSNBC later with a corkboard and string to clear this up for everyone and prove that I'm being totally cool about this
it was rough to see two champs like the spotted eagle-owl and the crow seeded together in the first round, but it feels good that one of them went on to win the tournament. at the end of the day Crow left it all on the field, and that level of dedication, commitment, and taste for carrion is what this tournament is really about. congratulations to Crow—you earned it!
My neighborhood crows are gathered in their favorite tall pine tree in rightful triumph. Hell yeah.

Always knew the little guy had it in ‘em. Much respect to the Kea 🙇
The early waves of migrants have started arriving here in NYC, with pine warblers, palm warblers, waterthrushes, oystercatchers, and others, so spring migration is on! Looking forward to seeing some of those out at Jamaica Bay tomorrow, along with some winter holdovers like weird ducks, brants, and (*crosses fingers*) maybe even a northern gannet.
It's the most birdiest time of the year!
American jingoism, xenophobia, and exceptionalism all wrapped into one. Stars and Stripes triumphant.
