    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...

    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...

    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...
