Announcing Powered By Birds

Hello dear bird blog pals and readers! I'm so excited to announce a brand new place for my personal birding blog: Powered By Birds. Most of my older blog posts have been moved to the new site but I am still working on getting everything exactly where it needs to be.

This blog will remain as my site to post book reviews, product reviews, contests and giveaways for birders, movie reviews, and maybe a little bit more promotion for my online birder gift shop.

Thank you for bearing with me as I continue to work on this cyber-move. And thank you for reading and following the MagnificentFrigatebird blog. I hope you'll stick around, and give Powered By Birds a look, too.
