Talk to me about birds!

I think they're pretty interesting. I don't know a lot about birds.

Migration is pretty cool- how they can move really long distances and still live normally in different ecosystems.

What was your favorite bird you saw in Ecuador?

The Tinamou. I could actually do their call. 

What did you learn in school this week? 

This week I learned that owls bob their heads for depth perception. And that their ears are asymetrical. I thought that was pretty interesting.

What did you think of the movie 'The Big Year'?

It was pretty entertaining. I didn't know that they saw each other around a lot. I don't know if two people on a big year see each other around a lot. I liked how they teamed up to help each other. 

What advice would you give to someone new to birding?

Don't be afraid to guess. If you're looking at a bird, and you don't know what it is but someone else does, don't be afraid to say what you think it is.
