Welcome to my blog! My goal with this blog is to keep you up-to-date with some of my birding outings and whatever else birding related I might want to write about.
I started actively birding earlier
this year when I became curious about what kinds of birds were coming to
my parents' feeder on St. Joseph Island. From there, I became curious
about what kinds of birds I saw everywhere I went. Eventually that lead
to be going out and looking for birds instead of just keeping a mental
note of ones I happened to see. At the time, I kept a life life and
just checked a new one off when I saw it. Then, earlier this month, I
saw a Spotted Sandpiper at Whitefish Island in Sault Ste. Marie. Since
it was extremely late in the year to see a sandpiper here, someone
suggested it should enter it on eBird. It did that and became hooked on
the website. I went entered, with the best of my ability, when and
where I had seen birds in the previous months. From that point on, I
have been actively keeping accurate checklists each time I go birding
and submitting the data on eBird.
I don't have much more to talk about right now, so maybe you could take this opportunity to take a look at some of my photos instead. I'm not a great photographer by any means, but I have managed a few decent shots.
