This Saturday is the 30th annual World Series of Birding, a 24-hour-long competition that attracts teams of top birders from all over to see who can find the most species of birds in one day in New Jersey.
This year, however, the excitement is tinged with an element of concern: Legendary birder Pete Dunne, who invented the WSB and has become synonymous with it, suffered a stroke six weeks ago.
