January 25: Dip

In British birder slang, to twitch a bird you're looking for is to successfully see it. When you miss it, that's a dip. We had some dips in our birding day with friends today, but then, the birds we did see--Mew Gull, Black-headed Gull, Redhead--make it all worthwhile. Actually, just spending a sunny day on the coast of Maine with good friends is what makes it all worthwhile. The birds are the bonus.
So this is birding:
staring at a bush for hours
not seeing a bird.
