A yellow warbler that might steal your heart..

Dr. John Fitzpatrick, director of the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, had more than 200 people in the Bird Day audience Sunday for a talk that was powerful and exciting. Through citizen scientists around the country reporting on birds in their backyards and the astonishing technology of the Internet, Fitzpatrick said, we can follow the lives of birds and determine the health of their ecosystems.

Here are three links that will engage you in birdwatching, and probably hook you on becoming a citizen bird scientist:

www.eBird.org; www.allaboutbirds.org; www.nestwarch.org.

You will be mesmerized and energized.
