Re: Weird things that have happened at your school?

Wow, I'm feeling really lucky. My school has had (to my knowledge) basically nothing happen to it. I think there were a few bomb threats at the high school several years ago, but a kid can get suspended for bringing a pocket knife into the building. And it's a pretty new building, so there aren't an...

Re: Ecology B/C

Don't trust Wikipedia. Anyone can change it. You mentioned that it contradicted itself. It was probably written by one person, and then edited by another. Try it sometime and see how long your change lasts. Wikipedia is quite reliable for heavily traveled topics, although it becomes less and less r...

Re: Ornithology B/C

A great resource is Frank B. Gill's ornithology textbook. You can order in from Amazon if your willing to spend some money (http://www.amazon.com/Ornithology-Frank-B-Gill/dp/0716724154), or you can use the preview on Google Books. On a separate topic, what is the difference between a bill and a beak...

Re: Ornithology B/C

I found a good web resource: http://www.whatbird.com/ You just search for the bird and scroll past the zillion ads for their iPhone app, and it's got pictures, a description, and call samples of whatever bird you searched for. I've been using it to work on the calls. Have you seen the Cornell Lab o...

Re: Ornithology B/C

The main Sibley's (the one labeled a guide to birds) should be acceptable. If you are talking about the Sibley's guide to bird behavior (it's something like that) then no, that would almost certainly not be allowed.

Re: Ornithology B/C

Does the Sibley guide have all of the birds? That's the only one that I have right now.
