    Birding In Illinois

    This morning, my friend and I left at 4:00 AM to go birding at Lowden-Miller state park near Rochelle, Il. It's about a 2 hour drive from the Chicago suburb where we live. From the beginning, it was a spectacular day. This beautiful mixed-wood forest provides habitat for a...

    Birding

    I heard this word for the first time late last year. Being fairly young, bird-spotting is something that might seem like a sad or uncool pastime. Yet men who go fishing are cool! Well the word birding is just like the word fishing. When you say it like that it seems cooler. I...

    I'm A Birder

    My father's friend gave me his Peterson's Field Guide to the Birds when I was six. It sat on a shelf for almost a decade. Then came the day when an interesting falcon-like bird soaring over the neighborhood caught my attention. I dusted off my father's old binoculars and ran back...

    My Life List

    I have a life list only, since i'm not really consistent enough to keep year lists yet. All the birds i've identified so far have been in Britain. In the last two days i've seen three new species whilst out hiking, but have only been able to identify two with certainty: ...

    The Birds...

    I walk 2 miles every morning if at all possible, around a beautiful lake, and count bird species as I go. There are heavily wooded trees on one side so there are many I see here that are not at my house which is only 2-3 miles away. Fun now especially when there are so many...
