some different kinds of birding news

See updates thus far for the international BIGBY ("big green big year") effort at the BIGBY website. It's much more than just an alternative way to bird, or to deal with high gasoline prices.

While you're at it, you might also like to check in on Malkom Boothroyd and his folks, working on their Bird Year...Malkom has seen 534 species this year, traveling by bicycle, canoe, rowboat, etc.; all muscle-powered conveyances. In the process, he and his supporters have also raised a significant amount of money for bird conservation and raised the bar for the rest of us.

See info about the link between birding and conservation at the 10000 birds blog.


I have not read all the way through this website yet, but the site offers a variety of info on "green" or eco-conscious travel.

And in a similar vein, here is a link to the International Ecotourism Society's website.
