What do you think has made you a better birder than when you first started?
Tell me about your favorite bird!
The Common Loon got me into birding. I go to New Hampshire a lot, because my grandmother has a house near Lake Winnipesaukee. She gave me binoculars and I could see baby loons following the mother. It's pretty fun!
I heard there was a birding club, and I came to one of the meetings- and I've been going ever since! It's fun. We sometimes get off-topic, looking at fungus and other stuff.
Even if you don't know the birds, going out and looking at them you'll learn them. Get outside and enjoy it!
