Test anxiety

Warning: This is a post for birders. There are no cute pics of preschoolers or warm and fuzzy shots of pets.

Sharon Stiteler's blog had something interesting on it today. I didn't even know something like this existed, but birders in Wisconsin can take a test to become a "certified birder".
You know, I thought I knew a thing or two about birding, but there's no way in Hell that I could even begin to take this test.

This test that's supposedly so hard? Um, I took it and scored a really high score and am now a certified birder in Wisconsin. Sheesh. You thought that was hard? Piece of cake, or suet, or whatever you birders would say. (There's a slight chance, of course, that I'm making all of this up.)

I think I need to come up with a cute nickname for you, like Sharon the Birdchick did with Non-Birding Bill.
Like "BB" for Birding Bystander or something. I don't know. I'm just glad you read my blog now.

I think the day I take a test to become a "certified birder" is the day that I will really need to be "certified" I love birding because it is fun, satisfying and relaxing - forget the rest ---

Of course there are always exceptions for very bright non-birders such as your husband :)

Yes, he is rather gifted, isn't he?

Gifted? Uh, no, I believe the technical term is: tetched.
