  2. Thanks for this list. Have you ever heard of bird language? It’s a great way to learn about birds and their communication patterns. If you’re interested – I wrote an article about how to locate owls by listening to American Robin alarms:


  3. Thanks, these links are much appreciated.


  4. I would suggest adding the 18th Annual Snow Goose Festival of the Pacific Flyway. It happens during the last weekend every January.


    • Thanks for the reminder. I just scheduled an announcement for it to be posted on Dec. 3

  10. I’m interrested in finding out about large birds that migrate at high altitude off of Point Loma in San Diego and in the San Diego Bay area. Most of the Bird Migration discussions on the Web are about birds at low altitude. Can you direct me to reports / web sites that provide estimates of bird migration pathways of large (greater than 2 lbs) in the areas I have mentioned that also contain altitude siteings / measured values. I’m particularly interested in birds that migrate at altitudes above 2000 feet.
