Urban Bird Conservation for Birds and People

Download here (pdf)

BirdLife Netherlands is a great organization doing fantastic work with urban bird conservation. Last year they sponsored a workshop on urban bird conservation in New Zealand, and I was able to attend and have since helped write up a report of the workshop that you can download here (pdf).  I'm currently working on another project with these guys, a survey of urban bird conservation programs carried out by BirdLife International Partners around the globe--so stay tuned!

Common Redpoll

Common Redpoll, Spruce Run, Hunterdon, NJ 15 Nov 2012
The last couple of days I've had flyover Red Crossbill, White-winged Crossbill, and Evening Grosbeak in the county, but no rare winter finches on the ground.  Today I got a report of a Common Redpoll at Spruce Run and was able to see this bird in a birch tree feeding on the catkins.  It was seen for at least 4 hours in the same tree--maybe a new record for a redpoll to stick in a tree here!
