I promise I’m going to stock up on birds for you this weekend (I’ve been busy writing about people who steal people’s kidneys for a living, and software), but until then, I wanted to point out that The Clade is now live and looking for contributors.

The brainchild of Chris Clarke, this seems to be sort of like Daily Kos for environmental bloggers, where information in the field can be aggregated and then dispersed, like finding a big dandelion head to blow. It’s set to fledge, if I may mix up my metaphor, in May, and I’m definitely eager to see how it shakes up.
