Box Elder Bugs are creepy, but cool looking. Don't squish 'em though. Their guts stink somethin' fierce.
|Birder Profile is a weekly blog segment at "Birding is Fun!" spotlighting a fellow birder. If you would be interested in sharing a little about yourself and your birding experiences, please send me an email. Is there a birder you'd like to see featured? Please nominate that person by sending me an e-mail too. Enthusiasm for birding is the only prerequisite!|
Special thanks to Daniel Huber for being my first guest.
