The Natural Resources Defense Council and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology today launched WeLoveBirds.org, an interactive online community for bird enthusiasts.

Click here to go to the site.

The Web site offers a free and open social network of people who are passionate about birds; access to information on birds and birding from a leading ornithology lab; and an opportunity to make a positive difference for birds and their habitats.

The site will feature information on more than 500 species of birds, bird news, notes on scientific discoveries, and an open platform for bird enthusiasts of all levels to contribute their own stories, photos, birding observations, questions and more.

The site represents a first partnership between council and the Cornell lab, nationally recognized conservation organizations that will offer the council’s expertise in policy and advocacy and the lab’s authoritative bird research, online birding resources and citizen-science programs.

The WeLoveBirds.org launch coincides with the Great Backyard Bird Count, an annual event hosted by the Cornell Lab and National Audubon Society that runs from Friday through Monday, and tallies more than 11 million birds during the 4-day count.
