  1. I thought I have look through your Links of Interest but now only I realized I didn’t….. Wow, you got a big well categorized links page!! Thanks for your generous sharing of avian information with other bird lovers in the internet, you have done a good job!!

    Well Done, Avianstudent!!!!
    And… a big thank!!!


    1. And thanks for reading! I’m always glad when people drop a comment to let me know that they find the info useful. I started this blog because I wished (as a new owner) that I’d had something like this. Now it’s become a place to store all my research, haha.

      Let me know if there’s anything you think of that I could add, or see anything you might like to see changed!


  2. What’s the secret to identifying birds?

    It’s not an easy question to answer.

    More than 700 kinds of birds live in North America and more than 10,000 worldwide, enough variety to keep anyone absolutely amazed for a lifetime.

    But you probably know other people that are able to accurately identify just about every bird.

    How do they do it? Do they know some “birding” secret that you don’t?

    Actually, yes, they do!

    And today I’m going to show you one of my favorite birding pursuit strategies of all time: the Eagle Eye Approach:


  3. To Sarah: I just read your article on Cockatoo’s. I am so thankful I found your article. Thank you for sharing it. I am an owner of 2 Gouldian Finches, and a former owner of Conures, Lovebirds and Cockatiels, and a future owner of a Senegal Parrot. I can’t thank you enough for your article. It was enlightening and wonderful. Thank You.
