We all thought we were very slowly slipping into spring. The winds have been very strong, but the temps were in the upper 40's. Then Mitch the Channel 11 weather guy predicted 2 inches of snow. We all blew it off.

There's been several times that I've taken a photograph of a bird or some landscape and I get home and load it onto the computer and notice something that I didn't when I was in the field. Now I'm pretty good about identifying most of the birds you commonly see in Alaska, but I am no expert. I am a very active amateur birder by all means.
I got an email the other day, like many of you probably did. It was about National Geographic Backyard Birder. I set it aside until the weekend when I had more time to check it out. I love most of their stuff and watch the Nat Geo Channel often, so I wasn't surprised at the quality of the graphics, the information in it and the ease of use. They cover 150 of the most common birds found in North America. My friend Ghost the Snowy Owl was a little disappointed that his species wasn't included, but most other common birds are. They also have an audio so you can hear their songs and or sounds.
I like this site and will return often to learn more about the species included in it when I find time sitting in front of the computer. If you would like to check it out, click here. I wasn't asked to review this site. This is my opinion on the site. Take it as you will.
