After seven years on the air, BirdNote has built itself a new nest! But don’t expect a pile of mud and sticks here – the new BirdNote.org is chock full of new features. Check out galleries of bird images and videos, a fully searchable archive of hundreds of BirdNote shows, and the BirdNote blog. And be sure to tell your friends!
Some of the new features include:
1. Search Box: Search the entire BirdNote website – all shows, blogs, images, video, etc. – by entering keywords in the search box, like “bald eagle,” “robin,” or “nest”. You have much to explore!
2. BirdNote show archive: Want to listen again to a show that aired recently? Find it here. Click on “Browse Shows” on the right to filter the BirdNote archive by date, topic, author, and more. If you listen to a show and want to listen to more, click on any of the links on the bottom of the page. Click on a bird’s name under “More Shows About These Birds” to see a list of all content – shows, blogs, images, videos, etc. – about that species. The links under “Related Topics” do the same.
3. Field Note Blog: Read more from the experts at BirdNote and others, as they write on a variety of subjects, from how to learn to bird by ear to recent trends in birdwatching and bird conservation. Leave a comment to join in the conversation!
