It's Fall!

You know what that means....BIRD MIGRATION!! The hummingbirds are wild in my yard. The ruby-throats are flashing their beauty spots! A hummingbird feeder beats television any day (1 part sugar, 4 parts water no red dye). The bandit-birds, aka Cedar Waxwings,should be showing up soon!

If you want to know more about birds, we have an awesome database in the library,
Birds of North America. It even provides bird calls for you to hear. This has been most useful! Books about Texas birds may be found in QL684 in the library stacks.

You also have access to Sibley Online Guide to Birds.

Now get off that couch and go enjoy one of the wonders of nature!

Great info. Do I use my NTNET login to get into the Birds of North America from the link you gave?
