Why does that link knock me off Firefox every time I click on it?

No se. But the jist of it is that Ebird just received its 100 millionth record. :shock:

For some reason, it makes me happy that the 100 millionth entry was submitted by a twelve-year-old, who saw a robin.

Pretty dang good growth, for ten years... 93,040 participants. But... bird sightings are not nearly so problematic to report as herp sightings, given a bird's natural propensity for mobility. Plus... who don't like birds? :roll: We herpers labor under an unfair yet extant discrimination. :roll:

I used to have a girlfriend named Robin, who I'd wake up early, every morning, so she could get... ahhhh... never mind. :roll: :lol: :lol: jim

With no emotocon... not sure if you're joking or not... :? it's a play on the old "early bird gets the worm' axiom I would tell her that, though, when waking her with what Jim Morrison once called 'the dull surprise'. :lol: :lol: :lol: not sure why she left me... :roll: :crazyeyes: :lol: :lol:

i'm guessing that progress will most likely eliminate all herps by the time we could even think about 100 million. on the bright side :D , i think the catastrophic ecosystem collapse that will have occurred prior to this, will have eliminated us in the process. not too sure if a smile is warranted here, but hey, it would be a good thing for nature.
