It's a blog about the birds of Alcatraz! While most people associate Alcatraz Island with its history as a federal penitentiary, or possibly its prior history as a military fort, few are aware that it is now a federally-protected bird sanctuary. My close friend/coworker and I started this blog to bring more attention to that aspect (and also because we are total bird nerds). At the very least we have some awesome photos and video.

For the curious, the name came from Marie (my name), Logan (his name), rock (as in "The Rock"), and bird. We thought it sounded super metal and brutal.

So are there any birds on there that can't be found any other place? And that blog rocks. Nice photos. What a fun project.

Thank you very much. We're definitely having a lot of fun with it.

As far as I'm aware of, everything we've got is fairly common to extremely common, though we are an important breeding site for several species in the Bay Area (primarily Black Crowned Night Herons and Snowy Egrets).
