Heavy-Duty Ornithology

Getting Serious

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

Two Fisted Bird Watcher is entertainment, an online journal with a bit of humor, grit, skin and attitude.


It’s got stories, book recommendations, even a bit of two-fisted philosophy. The kind of things you don’t normally get from a birding site.

But what if you want to get serious? What if you want some heavy-duty birding information? Where do you go for that? Right here, buddy. Check out our Tips and Links page! Even before that, start by clicking on this site to see what we mean: www.allaboutbirds.com. Now that’s “getting serious.” And it has its own links.


Our Tips & Links page can also connect to the coolest two-fisted birding sites in the world. Want to watch a live bird cam in real time broadcasting from the Amazon, the Pacific Northwest or some bird techie’s backyard?


Want a list of recent rare bird sightings. Or Audubon‘s suggestions about hot birding spots in your state, country, hemisphere, the world?

How would you like to link to birding blogs, online magazines and print journals that DON’T have the two-fisted bushwhacker approach you get here? No problem; we understand.

Maybe you want news and data, breeding maps, research from the Cornell School of Ornithology, serious wildlife photography.

imagesOkay, we’ll take you there.

Just click on our Tips and Links page. Thanks to Google, and especially to Hougthon Mifflin and Peterson Guides (they’ve done their homework), you can go anywhere for any kind of birding and ornithological information.

One link leads to another, leading to another, and another, until suddenly you’ve got an infinitely branching tree of information to explore.


And it all started innocently, with you reading our story about a guy getting stopped for speeding and using the pileated woodpecker defense, or a titillating little story called Tits, or about Gleason getting one-upped by Norton on the Honeymooners TV show.


But when you want to get serious, we get it. The knowledge of the world wide web is within your two fists. And a click.
