Come sing your birdsong for the Armchair Birder

“Drink your teeeeee!”

That would be the song of the male Eastern Towhee, according to the Learn Bird Songs! website. You can hear the songs of nearly three dozen species there, and hone your imitation on the way to Atlanta this weekend.

John Yow, the Armchair Birder, will be at the Decatur Book Festival Sunday afternoon at 2:30, and he’s put out a special invitation for audience members to compete in an informal birdsong contest.

So bring your best warble, your most magnificent chirp, and meet Yow and dozens more authors in Atlanta this weekend.

Safe travels, and happy Labor Day!
