A new blog worth mentioning

Excuse my "on again, off again" presence of late on this blog. I hope to be at a point soon where it is "on again, on again", but you know how life goes...

A friend of mine recently started a bird blog called "Avian Frontiers", and the first post really caught my attention. Admittedly, there are a few things missing from the map (ie. Kirtland's Warbler from Michigan, Florida Scrub-Jay from Florida, etc.), but it is extremely interesting nonetheless. It shows, for each state, which species of bird is represented by the highest percentage of that species' numerical population within the state boundary. Not only is this biologically interesting, it is also just a fun way to quiz yourself, and there are plenty of surprises on the map. Enjoy it:
