Only 12 years old, Elliot skipped school to visit Magee Marsh in Ohio to see some birds. You can tell from his smile that it's worthwhile! 


Aren’t you supposed to be in school today?



Why did you come out here instead?

It just interests me, birding does.


How did you get started?

In Boy Scouts, I took the bird study merit badge, and that got me hooked.


Anything in particular you’re hoping to see today? 

Not really, just looking!
