I am beyond excited to have just purchased this text book from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology: Handbook of Bird Biology. I will also be taking their courses Comprehensive Bird Biology and Field Ornithology to help me really obtain the knowledge I need to move forward with internships and field experience in ornithology. I also just went to orientation at our local wildlife department last night and should be able to start volunteering in the next week or two. I’ve dreamt of getting into this field since I was a child, but sometimes life takes you on a stray path for awhile. I’m very lucky to have all these opportunities in front of me right now, and I will document every wonderful detail of it here on my blog.
If you’re interested in snagging your own copy of Cornell’s Handbook of Bird Biology, you can purchase it here.
