Happy Centenary, I and the Bird!

We congratulate I and the Bird, the blog carnival for birds and birdwatching, on achieving its milestone 100th post. It’s a testament to the organization and stick-to-it-iveness of its founder and chief organizer, Mike Bergin, as well as to the vitality of bird blogging in general. I and the Bird is now the longest running nature blog carnival on the web, and was our inspiration when we founded Festival of the Trees. We urge all FOTT contributors to consider becoming IATB contributors too, if you aren’t already, starting with the 101st edition. And I hope you’re all still around when FOTT reaches that milestone, too!

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several books of poetry, including Ice Mountain: An Elegy, Breakdown: Banjo Poems, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my long-running literary blog Via Negativa, where I'm currently creating erasure poems from every entry of the Diary of Samuel Pepys. I'm also the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a blog showcasing the best poetry videos on the web.
