Twitch and Shout

The Independent is reporting that those keeping tabs on British birds have noted a bevy of alien species among the usual native suspects. From Australian black swans (Cygnus atratus) to South American monk parakeets (Myiopsitta monachus), Brits are now finding all kinds of ornithological oddities in their gardens. If you live in the U.K. and are "twitching" to report your own sightings, the 2006 Big Garden Birdwatch is coming up in less than two weeks, or you can join the Garden BirdWatch project year-round.
