There are in fact many, many sites about ornithology, but few have as much of a user-friendly and lively appearance as Geobirds. Billed as "your online birding community", the site contains sections like "What bird was that?�, "Share", and "Learn". In the "What bird was that?� area, visitors are taken into the colorful "BirdBrain" interface, which allows them the opportunity to navigate around the United States to begin determining which type of bird they may have spotted. It's quite a bit of fun, and the interface is easy to use. In the "Share" section, visitors can let fellow users know what they have seen recently by adding their bird-watching data to this interactive map of North America. The site is rounded out by the "Learn" section, which includes an online field guide (complete with photographs and full descriptions) that allows users to learn about everything from the Albert's Towhee to the Zone-tailed hawk.
