    And I Enjoy Seeing New Birds For The First Time

    This week I saw a Blue Grosbeak on the feeders for the first time ... since I didn't know what it was at the time I was wondering if it was some sort of bunting, and it is in fact related closest to buntings and cardinals

    Watching Sea Birds

      Today I saw my very first Puffins whilst exploring the cliffs and rocky coves of North Wales. I thought they would be easy to spot but they are so well camouflaged despite their colourful beaks. The best way to spot them was to look out for their orange feet. They...

    The City Or Rural Of Aberdeen, Wa Irrony

    I usually like to Bird Watch. My Vision seems to discourage me, because it's so hard to see things as quick flashes and grasp what I see immediately. Even with Binoculars, it takes me time to get the Binoculars pointed at a Bird, by as long as it will stick around longer...
