What Do the Bird-Watchers Know?

"A list of birds seen on a given day is also a form of prayer, a thanksgiving for being alive at a certain time and place. Posting that list online is a 21st-century form of a votive offering."

My favorite line in this interesting NY Times article about birders and the climate-driven changes they can help us document. [Thanks to CMRG for the tip]
