Monday Mystery Answered


On Monday I asked:

After a really good day of birding, I hear a lot of folks say that it was "a red-letter day."

What does it mean, and where did it come from?

The answer is here.

It should be noted that birders love to use the expression when they get a new life bird or see a great migration.

Carol Flanagan got high marks for creativity.
