The Onion sets its sights on birders

This piece appeared in the online edition of the Onion this week:
"The Sibley Guide to Birds Has Clearly Misidentified the Dark-Eyed Junco"

A disclaimer for anyone who still doesn't know: The Onion is satire.

The piece is laugh-out loud funny and had to have been written by a birder or someone who is in regular contact with one. I admit I almost reached for my Sibley's to check on juncos, but of course I don't have it with me.
