Ecotourism in Azerbaijan

Ecotourism in Azerbaijan

I’m sure everyone knows where Azerbaijan is, but for the few out there who don’t it’s located just north of Iran along the coast of the Caspian Sea.  Of course I’m kidding.  The first I’ve heard about this country was after reading about it from BirdLife International.

There are many examples of wasted space: industrial parks, retail parking lots, school grounds, church land, and backyards. These lands are “landscaped” to provide a pristine look of neatly trimmed bushes, […]

Christmas Bird Count – Rockford

Today was Rockford, Illinois’ Christmas Bird Count. We started the day at around 7, hiking through tall grass and rousing up a Ring-necked Pheasant.

Cerulean Warbler Conservation

Cerulean Warbler Conservation

I was a bit hasty at first in my thoughts of the status of Cerulean Warblers.  First off, I absolutely LOVE CERULEANS and all wood-warblers.  My first impression was that if it was delisted it wasn’t the end of the world for the species.  The Cerulean had gotten a load of good press and lots […]
