Example text

It turns out the expert was no such thing. He had only been to see the Dowitcher once before and was pontificating on the basis of this limited information. Essentially I had dipped on the Short-billed Dowitcher because I had been taken in by a duffer (see DIP, DUFFER). indd 53 30/10/07 9:05:53 AM DUDE Dude / a generally disparaging term used by birders for non-birders; as in, ‘I went out to Inskip Point but there were too many dudes around to have any chance of seeing the Black-breasted Button-quail’.

Indd 53 30/10/07 9:05:53 AM DUDE Dude / a generally disparaging term used by birders for non-birders; as in, ‘I went out to Inskip Point but there were too many dudes around to have any chance of seeing the Black-breasted Button-quail’. The dude moniker is most pointed when it is directed at another birdwatcher, as it implies a general softness or wimpiness. Gung-ho birders like to take pride in the discomfort they will endure and will readily denigrate anyone who fails to live up to their Spartan approach as being a dude, even if that involves eminently sensible choices like sleeping in a real bed as opposed to in the car or on the ground; or stopping to eat a proper meal rather than eating soggy, month-old muesli bars on the go.

It may turn up again or it may not – you just never know. It is as if you were a Stones fan and missed out on their 1973 concert. Though upset at the time, you might reasonably presume they would come back to play again. If you had still not seen them by 2007, you might be rather more worried about ever seeing them play live, particularly every time Keith falls out of another coconut tree.
