Clever DIY or do it yourself news piece from the Cornell Chronicle, about ornithology researchers using RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags to track the visits of birds to feeders. Apparently the RFID readers can cost up to $10,000, but a couple of handy ornithologists devised a way to build your own for less than $100! If you are interested in birds, we not only have many books in our catalog, and great article resources like BioOne and ScienceDirect, but we also have the Birds of North America database.
