Cornell Promotes Bird Blogging

In an announcement that could be a year or more old (it carries a copyright date of 2007), Cornell University Cooperative Extension promotes blogs as a great way to Celebrate Urban Birds! Given the spate of new bird blogs that have come online since the first of the year (at least 41 by my count), it appears that many people have taken this suggestion to heart. I’m honored that this humble blog was included among Cornell's appended “examples of some bird blogs.”

Addendum added 8/25/08: In a comment on the initial post, cyberthrush of Ivory-bills LiVE!! pointed out the obvious, that there is “no need for the emphasis on ‘urban birds’ – blogs can be about rural birds, pelagic birds, tropical birds, bird behavior or biology, or perhaps even birds of the remote southeastern bottomland swamps :-),” a point very well taken. Your blog should obviously reflect your personal views of the avian world. That's what makes perusing the myriad of bird blogs now available so much fun!

Of course no need for the emphasis on "urban birds" -- blogs can be about rural birds, pelagic birds, tropical birds, bird behavior or biology, or perhaps even birds of the remote southeastern bottomland swamps ;-)

You are absolutely right, of course. "Urban birds" was simply the cause being promoted by this particular new release from Cornell. I'll amend this post to make that absolutely clear. Thanks!
