Any suggestions for some good RSS feeds or blogs about birding, or about birds?  I need something to keep me semi-sane.  Science, evolution, or just cool pictures, backyard bird feeding and attracting, are all good.  Something with frequent posts or updates?

I saw this one- it looked interesting.  Im sure there must be lots of others.

Booklover - that is the cutest bird picture! Love it!

Thanks for the great video Patricia! I'll have to watch it several times.

And thanks for your pigeon pictures. They are beautiful birds.

You can see them here in Austin. You just need to know where to look.

Steph, that is a beautiful bird. Where are they? Gulf coast?

I love the Kingfishers Joan! Thank you!

Thanks for the gallery link.

Kingfishers 

A lovely series of photos with ambition to attract tourist trade. Wouldn't that be great to develop tourism instead of poaching?!
