2012-2013 Bird of the STA-5 Trip Chosen

After much discussion and much soul searching, the “Bird of the Trip” for the December 22,2012 STA-5 trip has been chosen.  The bird is the Fulvous Whistling Duck.

Ever wonder what fulvous means?  According to Wikipedia “Fulvous (play /ˈfʊlvəs/) is a colour, sometimes described as dull reddishyellow, brownish-yellow or tawny, it can also be likened to a variation of buff, beige or butterscotch. As an adjective it is used in the names of many species of birds, and occasionally other animals, to describe their appearance.”
