This section shows news from members that regularly produce news (a "blog") and make these news available to others through a RSS feed. Many standard tools such as Wordpress do this out of the box. 

Through birdobservatories.com's news aggregation functionality, your observatory blog will have a potential world-wide spot-on audience. An awesome recovery will be awed by all, no matter where the the bird was caught and found again!

A final, party overlapping reason for sharing all these news, is of course to create a (during season) regularly updated content for this site, making it an interesting stop-over for all being interesting in "bird observatorying".

  • Bird Conservancy Sweet song of the Prairie Skylark

    Dec 2, 2019 | 00:00 am

    The Sprague’s Pipit is a charismatic songbird of North American grasslands. If you’ve ever wandered the Northern Great Plains in summer, you’ve probably heard their sweet song, and maybe even seen their high-altitude aerial displays which can last for hours. One of many fast-declining grassland bird species, we're urgently working to learn more about the life cycle of the Sprague's Pipit so that its song can continue to be enjoyed for generations to come.

    The post Sweet song of the Prairie Skylark appeared first on BirdConservancy.org.
