    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: ...

    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...
