More versions of the weekly "Birds in the News" are up on Living the Scientific Life.
Make sure to read the story in this one about Phoebe Snetsinger. The world record holder for the total unique birds she recorded, over 8500. The thing is, she was given 1 year to live, so for the next 18 years she traveled around bird watching. She eventually died in a vehicle accident on a bird watching trip. What an inspirational story!
