Today, a new web site has launched for Birders who Blog, Tweet and Chirp. The original Facebook group, who was founded by Dawn Fine, has grown  by leaps and bounds and the new site was developed for birders and nature lovers who blog and/or use Twitter and Chirptracker. Birders from across the country are welcomed!

The first official outing of the group was in Massachusetts on June 13th at Plum Island. Birders from several New England states attended. You can read my story about the outing here. More outings are planned, with the next one in Connecticut on July 11th.

The reason for a web site separate from Facebook is the concern for space and ease of use. Members will be able to interact with others in their region and state. A photo gallery is included to post photos of events or your personal birding adventures. It’s a great place for bird watchers to share their knowledge, their sightings and their favorite spots.

The best part of the site is the ability to set up outings for birders in your region, just like we did on June 13th. A calendar of events is available to look for outings in your area, or announce your own.

It’s awesome meeting up with the folks who own the blogs that you visit frequently. All it takes is a little before hand preparation and announcing your interest in having an outing with fellow bloggers, Twitter and ChirpTracker users.

As this is a new site, there will be new features added on occassion. Comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated. Check it out and take it to another level interacting with your fellow birders who blog, tweet and chirp!
