Birds Everywhere
Birding sites abound on the Web, but fly to this one first if you're looking for the best. If you're looking for information on a special bird and their habitat, the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History (www.nmnh.si.edu/BIRDNET/BIRDLINKS.html) provides links to over 150 sites, ranging from that of the Cornell University Laboratory of Ornithology to state birding groups.



Books

Gardening for the Birds
Written specifically for the upper South, Gardening for the Birds, by Thomas G. Barnes (University Press of Kentucky, 1999; $25), offers ideas for transforming your yard into an oasis for wildlife. Barnes includes an encyclopedia of native trees and shrubs that attract a wide variety of birds, butterflies, and mammals, plus a large section on feeding birds.
