We misidentified this bird on page 32 of our May issue and, fittingly, got chirped at on Twitter:

 

 @justinehausheer

Hey @BackpackerMag, that bird photo in your latest issue? It’s a summer tanager, not a scarlet tanager!



Overheard


• @gangrey said exactly what we’re all thinking: "It’s been weeks since I read Brian Mockenhaupt in  @BackpackerMag [“X Marks the Spot”; May 2014] and I’m still daydreaming about finding Forrest Fenn’s treasure."

 

•  We might be too late, though: Kevin D. Williams has a line on the loot, but just needs a quick favor: “I know exactly where the ‘X’ is… In exchange for my story, I am only asking for a ride there.”
 
• Heather Friedli-Ratzlaff wanted to have The Talk: “It’s not me, it’s you... I’m tired of almost every BACKPACKER being basically full of gear reviews.”


BP: We’re heartbroken, but confused. Do you only read the Gear Guide?

 

• @Burghpunk: @BackpackerMag we need to have a talk about tweeting all of these awesome pics on a Monday morning. This is cruel and unusual punishment.


BP: Guilty as charged!
