2020—Hello, Birb!!

Somehow I managed to miss a most important addition to the lexicon: birb. It is “internet-speak” for birds. Apparently it’s been around for quite a few years. But, just the other day it came to my attention through a link from the Audubon Society. Being a passionate photographer of birds and even the roommate (I hesitate to say owner) of a Red-lored Amazon parrot, I should have known this long ago. Not all birds qualify as birbs but according to the Audubon Society’s article (see link above) all parrots qualify so I have my very own birb to show off. And not only are there birbs! There are also borbs and floofs. Watch this space for more birbs, and even some borbs, and floofs! Here is my very own birb, Bobo, as she goes about her daily excursion on the kitchen countertop in search of chili peppers. Nikon D500, Nikkor 105mm f/1.4
