Bird lovers unite

Posted By on Wed, Oct 27, 2010 at 1:11 PM

We all know about cat ladies. Well, there's also the little-known category of bird ladies. I'm of the latter stripe, likely to be ensconced in a house full of chirps and shrieks from my well-tended aviary. That's the idea anyway. And the reason why I'm passing on this website, an online mecca for all things outdoor bird related. was built by the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology (the preeminent U.S. college of the study of birds) with the goals of promoting birding and conservation.

And how. The site hosts dozens upon dozens of blogs and forum discussions on backyard and professional birding issues, identification questions, news on wildlife concerns (including an ongoing dispatch reporting the aftereffects of the gulf oil spill) and just fun bird pics, like this one:
