Other Birding Resources

Books:

Buteo Books:
2731 Arrington Rd., Arrington, VA 22922.  Web link: Buteo Books.  A great resource for serious birders and ornithologists.  Check out the new listing, "The Black Swift in Idaho, and Biography of Earl J Larrison," By JW Weber, a local Idaho naturalist. 

Heart warming online stuff:

For a beautiful heart warming and wrenching image of the sagebrush we and our beloved sage grouse live in, find "The Sagebrush Sea", on line, which aired on Idaho Public TV in 2015.  Here's a link:  The Sagebrush-Sea on PBS.   Make sure you have your ears on; the sound track is as spectacular as the visuals.  This film is a game changer.


And here is a link to an exhibit at the Smithsonian American Art Museum titled "The Singing and the Silence: Birds in Contemporary Art".  Click on, "View the online gallery" to take a virtual tour.  Truly excellent.
