Hi @[100002358245356:2048:Ken Billington] I did visit your website on my Samsung and it is not really mobile friendly at all. We would need more information from you with regard to how it was mobilised, also what sort of content you would like to see shared with users on their phones, Would you want them to contact you at all, etc. or is it just for information?

Hello everybody, we think that the blogs should talk about where to see many species of birds for one day at least, like in Manu Road for example that we go guiding in Peru, so birders can get some information about their favorite species.

The blogs content is awesome the way it’s designed is not as great. I’d like to see an artistically designed blog, that’s user intuitive, attractive and fucntional.

I would recommend a map, where you can click on a location, and have all postings from that area pop up, along with categories such as Sharon recommended specific for the area clicked on. Thanks so much for your blog. I love it! (And I truly appreciate that you are always looking for feedback and make requested changes to keep it somewhere we all keep wanting to come back to.)

If you click on a tag, you’ll get a list of excerpts where the tag name is included in the post. Give it a try and let us know your opinion.

Philippe, we do try to be multi-lingual in scope and already have authors posting in Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish and French. If you would contribute a few articles in French yourself, that would be great!

I was only able to choose three options but do agree on a fourth, having a categorized section on basic, behavioral, location, and migratory info on bird and wildlife species with links to articles on the specific species. Also, perhaps a categorized section by country on their native species. Although I find those articles of interest, as a wildlife photographer it's of little use when researching different birds or wildlife to shoot here in the States. I also agree with the poster who said quality over quantity. As you know, I've been absent from contributing lately because its winter here… Read more »

I think the most important thing is quality over quantity, many blogs posts uninteresting articles just so they have something to post every day.
