Birdzilla: "The number one birding Internet site." This site is for the birder and the
bird photographer. One of the databases lets you search for the characteristics of over
900 bird species many of which include 'range' maps and photographs. Some include audio
recordings. FYI. "Starlings were introduced into N. America (New York) in 1890; they
have since expanded throughout the continent. Imagine what it must have been like to go
birding in the early 20th century without seeing any of these birds!" Funny, some feel
that way about crows.
