RSS for birding

Yahoo's Pipes site is obviously not the only way to handle RSS feeds for birding sites. Google's Reader is another one, and has the advantage of useful interfaces on smart-phones. So here are the RSS/Atom/XML links that I'm using for both Yahoo and Google:


Lots of programs can read RSS feeds, including browsers like Firefox. Yahoo groups offer RSS feeds by default. Princeton's LISTSERV-based RSS feeds seem to have problems with Yahoo's Pipes but work ok in Google's Reader. Other non-Yahoo lists may or may not offer RSS feeds and the HTML aggregate at doesn't either - so the coverage cannot be comprehensive.

Because of the issues with Princeton's RSS feed and Yahoo pipes I am using Google's Reader and the RSS feeds above to check lists "in the field".
