Thread Name: BS: Birdwatching
Subject: RE: BS: Birdwatching
A twitcher is someone who actively (and usually obsessively) seeks out new birds to put on their lifelist. I have a relative who got a phone call and drove 300 miles (well above the speed limit) in an attempt to "grip" a hawk owl. He got there and it was gone. This is called "dipping out". Do we all need to get a life, or does this count?
