COM: Blogarithmic #94

One of the things that frustrated me most in the last couple of months was not being able to post my usual sightings reports and pictures, or being able to make contributions, to the carnivals I and the Bird, Friday Ark, and falling behind on my hosting duties for Circus of the Spineless. In this last instance i am most grateful to my co-sponsor Nannothemis at Urban Dragon Hunters for taking up the slack rather intuitively since no one knew where i had disappeared to.

I was thus also remiss in not helping advertise these fine compilations, and want to do some catching up here in that regard.

First, ex-Austinite Rob Fergus is the host for the latest edition of I and the Bird, that’s #18 if you’re counting. It’s up at The BirdChaser here.

The January edition of Circus of the Spineless was hosted by P.Z. Myers at Pharyngula.

And the February edition is up at send submissions to Bora.

Excellent work on both! Thanks folks -- i continue to be stunned by the number of submissions. I think we might have the single most popular carnival on the net.

The next edition is going to be at Research at a Snail’s Pace get your submissions to Matt.

And John at DC Birding Blog hosted Carnival of the Vanities last week. You can check it out here.

And Kevin at Slant Truth hosted the most recent Carnival of the Liberals here.
