I really like round birds or “borbs” as they are also known. I would like to know if there is already a project for collecting photos of round birds or if I need to start one myself.
yep there is!
Not a single borb in Africa
I don’t think I have a really good mental image of what a “borb” is. Is it truly a bird species which has a profile more closely approximating a circle/sphere? Or is it just a bird with its plumage fluffed out in cold weather? Some/many of the observations added to that linked project seem to have no resemblance to anything borb-like.
In my opinion both of your ideas count as borbs.
That’s weird. I tried looking for borb projects and couldn’t find any
I don’t recall borbs being discussed in my ornithology class.
Agreed, many appear to be sub-borbital.
I didn’t know they had a name. Thank you for educating me. Next time I see a borb, I know what to call it.
I suppose “boblatespheroirb” wasn’t suitably euphonious.
