There are a number of blogs on birds on the web, probably over a hundred. Some are broad in concept and scope like this one on Ornithology.com and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Others are limited to particular geographical areas such as Birds Calgary and Cornwall Birding and the very specific Beddington Farmland one. Others, like Saving the Spoonbill Sandpiper, Belize Bird Rescue, American Birding Association, Audubon, and Skywatch Bird Rescue, have conservation goals as priorities. There are several whose goal is really advertisement, such as the Caligo Ventures Blog and Birding the Strait. Both American and British Blogs are well represented.
Now my blog, offshoots of Ornithology.com, has its own niche. Rather than offering a long, detailed blog, I limit mine to about 500 easily digestible pages. My goal is to educate readers about the fascinating world of birds bit by bit. I have been studying birds for over 50 years, have given hundreds of talks and led hundreds of field trips, and I keep learning new things. Sometimes these facts have been known for awhile and I just recently discovered them and sometime the facts themselves have been recently discovered. I do a lot of reading and of course communicate with other ornithologists.
I have just put on my website Ornithology.com, the option to sign up up for my blog posts. Ornithology.com is a very popular website and comes up on Google #3 after Wikipedia and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
What you will get from me are short but meaty pieces of ornithological information, sometimes lightweight but sometimes depressingly heavyweight, but mostly in between – something you will enjoy and learn from. And I welcome comments, questions, and general input. I will try to blog on a weekly basis so you always have something to look forward to. So I hope you will sign up. Meanwhile, let me know what areas of ornithology most interest you.
