There have been some really great birding blog posts recently. Below are some links that I encourage you to check out.
Bill Schiess' Wild in Idaho blog always has interesting articles and cool photography. Check out this post on Cedar Waxwings.
If you haven't been following the fun and friendly competition between IBO's Hiedi and Jay, then you've been missing out. But, you can certainly catch up by reading their blog. They are trying to see as many Idaho species as they can in 2009 and they are very close to 300. We can help them out by reporting anything you might see on their updated wish list. You can also keep up with their awesome updates from the Idaho Bird Observatory blog.
Greg Gillson is the Pacific Northwest Backyard Birder whose blog features his own amazing photography. About once a week he highlights a specific bird. This one is on the Mountain Chickadee.
Bill Thompson III is the editor of Bird Watcher's Digest and has a great blog that occasionally features silly contests. Create the caption for a garden gnome peering through a spotting scope.
I just discovered this well-written blog this week from Idaho's neighbor to the south, Utah. Check out Melissa's Backyard Birds Utah blog.
Other great blogs that I follow are listed in the right-hand column of my blog. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
