Bo Beolens, known far and wide as the Fatbirder, has combed countless birding websites to compile one of the richest avian-themed online directories in the world. Consequently, we consider it no small honor to be included in his most recent list of top ten websites for birders. Sure, he might have gotten the history of our happy site wrong and maybe some of his favorites haven’t been updated for months or years but we’re still pleased! Plus we’re the only blog on the list.
