Our Recommendations for May, 2002
Voices of New World Parrots
Parrots are one of the most threatened bird groups in the world. This three-CD audio guide, Voices of New World Parrots, presents the characteristic sounds of virtually all of the New World parrots. Covering some 140 species, as well as many distinctive forms, the guide features a wide range of vocal signals and includes as many call types for each species as are available.
Bird Track & Sign
Observant nature-lovers can discover which birds are where by examining tracks, trails, and a variety of bird sign: discarded feathers, feeding leftovers, caches, pellets, nests, droppings, and skulls and bones. This fully illustrated guide presents thorough and straightforward instruction for identifying bird families or individual species by careful examination of the unique sign they leave behind.
Cornell Lab Guide to Birds of North America v3
This CD features all 930 species seen in the US and Canada. Included are 2,683 photos, 711 songs, almost 100 videos, and over 500 quizzes. The Birder's Handbook by Paul Ehrlich is included in electronic format. See five most similar species. Hear each common and scientific name pronounced. This is the top-rated birding CD available today.
Colorado National Monument
39.10 N 108.92 W
Beautiful red sandstone cliffs are home to birds that prefer arid lands and Pinyon/Juniper pines. Stop at Devil's Kitchen picnic area and Saddlehorn Campground.
Fountain Creek Regional Park
38.24 N 104.17 W
Good riparian habitat here can be very productive during migration. Watch for Lazuli Bunting and Lesser Goldfinch. The marsh has Wood Duck, Sora and Virginia Rail.
Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge
37.47 N 106.16 W
Mid-March is the time to see the Sandhill Cranes. Later in May the waterfowl and rails begin the breeding season. In summer the pond edges are very productive. Wintering raptors make this a great spot any time of the year.
Pawnee National Grassland
40.45 N 104.19 W
Look for Mountain Plover, Brewer's Sparrow and Lark Bunting plus Ferruginous Hawk and McCown's Longspur. A visit in June is ideal -- the birds are singing and the wildflowers are in bloom.
Rocky Mountain Park / Golden Gate Canyon Park
40.23 N 105.38 W
A real Rocky Mountain high! Blue Grouse, Three-toed Woodpecker, Clark's Nutcracker, Red Crossbill, White-tailed Ptarmigan and Rosy-Finches. Black Swift in the summer
Featured Hot Spot:
Long Point, Ontario
42.58 N 80.25 W
This point thrusts 19 miles into the northern edge of Lake Erie. Visit in the spring for spectacular warbler migrations and great hawk flights. The Long Point Bird Observatory is a good place to start -- pick up an annotated checklist.
Association of Field Ornithologists
The Association of Field Ornithologists is a society of professional and amateur ornithologists dedicated to the scientific study and dissemination of information about birds in their natural habitats. Founded in 1922 as the New England Bird Banding Association, AFO continues to be especially active in bird-banding and development of field techniques. Additionally, AFO encourages participation of amateurs in research, and emphasizes conservation biology of birds. The geographic focus is the Western Hemisphere, with contributions to the ornithology of the Neotropics particularly encouraged. The Association's annual meetings and its quarterly Journal of Field Ornithology reflect these goals.
