So for over a year, every Tuesday (and sometimes many other days of the week), we have had Tweet Tuesday, a series about birds. At the beginning, I was basically just posting pictures that I thought were pretty but as time went on, I became interested in a variety of issues including avian intelligence, conservation, migration and various cultural practices. As a result, I have cultivated a decent amount of online resources which I will share with you and add to as I go forward. I haven’t even included all the stuff that come out of zoos and wildlife conservation sites.
