As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

National bird monitoring programme in the works

Before scientists, government officers and bird enthusiasts can properly conserve important Virgin Islands bird species, they have to get a handle on which birds are here and where they nest, feed and breed. 

To that end, the Conservation and Fisheries Department launched Birds of Paradise this week. The programme partners individual birders with officers from the CFD, other government agencies, and non-governmental organisations like the Jost Van Dykes Preservation Society and the Caribbean Youth Environmental Network.
