List of Known North American Bird Blogs

In May 2006, I compiled a list of 90 North American bird blogs, which I made available in a blogroll on the right-hand side of Birds Etcetera. I also posted a notice of availability of the list on the BirdChat listserv. Earlier this month, I summarized recent edits to the list, which now stands at 122 blogs.

To be included on this list, sites must meet the following criteria: (1) the subject matter is primarily or consistently about birds, birding, or birders; (2) the authors are physically located in North America, or write about birds, birding, or birders on that continent; (3) it was active in the past year (i.e., at least one entry); and (4) it is structured in the format of a blog (i.e., dated entries in reverse chronological order).
