Cape May Birding - Episode 20 - The Return of the Swainsonii

It is a period of bird race war. Rebel birders, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic List Keepers. They also managed to escape the north by 10am.

During the battle, Rebel birders located secret plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon, the NORTH SOUTH WORLD SERIES ROUTE.

Evading the dreaded Imperial Turnpike, a group of freedom birders led by Admiral N.K. Skywalker has established a new birding route on the remote pine barren world of Jer Sey.

Pursued by the Empire's agents, the 1000birds squadron races south aboard their SUV starship with an Audubon Falcon in support, custodians of the plans that can save the birders and restore freedom to the birdathon. Not making the Kessel run along the I-80 from the north in less than 12 parsecs their route planning skills were tested.

WITHOUT STOPPING FOR LUNCH the great Brig system soon came into view. Their thoughts turned to shorebirds, overwinterers and then beyond where the singing Swainson's Warbler, quantum tunnelling Cattle Egrets, and the Herons of the Atlantic Back Bay Marshes await.
