Devoted entirely to issues related to migratory birds, this site provides broad and accessable information on the millions of songbirds that breed in the U.S. and Canada and spend the winter in Latin America and the Caribbean. John Sterling maintains this site which contains seven fact sheets that discuss the relationship between migratory birds and coffee, insect consumption, the importance of stopover sites, and avian adaptations to long-distance migration. The "bird of the month" feature highlights the ecology and life history of one migratory species and including interesting facts on the species' behavior or biology, and a link to data from the Breeding Bird Survey. Clickable maps of Central and South America link to country lists of migratory birds together with their abundance. This site will appeal to biologists and birdwatchers alike.
