The BirdNote Website
© Tom Sanders
This Common Yellowthroat is singing up a storm over our new website! We've been working on this for a long time. We're grateful to The Peter Jay Sharp Foundation for special funding for the upgrade. Please take a few minutes to explore. We're adding photos and videos and links to webcams almost daily, and you're welcome to post your own photos and videos, too! Join the fun.
Please leave a comment below, and let us know what you think of the new site. Thanks!
BirdNote Website – What’s New? What’s NOT?!
This is BirdNote. No, this is BirdNote! No, THIS is BirdNote…
MARY: Hey, Michael, have you been to the new BirdNote website? It’s amazing!
MICHAEL: Absolutely Mary, I was looking at this video the other day -- great stuff of Peregrines. [Peregrine cakking]
MARY: And the webcams! I mean you can see all kinds of birds live, on their nests. Eagles, hummingbirds, bluebirds – all kinds of things. Seriously cool. [Wing beat of Anna’s Hummingbird]
MICHAEL: I saw the best video of a couple of crows, taking turns swinging on a branch. Hilarious! [American Crow pair]
MARY: Did you see the birdfeeders in Brazil?
MICHAEL: You could spend half your day, just looking at the photos on the new site. There used to be just one picture of the bird of the day, but now there’s a slide show and a whole gallery of birds. Some really great photography. A lot of it from our own BirdNote listeners.
MARY: Something else I think is neat is all the general info – putting up birdfeeders, what to do if you find a sick bird, that kind of thing. And it's so.o.o.o much easier to share a show with friends now!
[Male Willow Ptarmigan]
MICHAEL: We get to tell stories all time on the radio, but on the new website, listeners can tell their stories too. It’s fun. [Olive-sided Flycatcher]
MARY: So … did you see the pictures of us? Woo-hoo! We’re in there, too!
MICHAEL: Oh my! Check it out! The new BirdNote.org. I’m Michael Stein. And I’m Mary McCann. [Male Willow Ptarmigan]
