Discovering birds has been quite an adventure for me. I've learned so much and I've been amazed to find all these great birds right under my nose! Read my story here. One of the most important things I've learned is how important it is to share this experience with others. This website is a way to share pictures, videos, and my observations with you. My blog has even more current information and pictures showing what I've been seeing -- check it out, too. Hope you enjoy seeing what I saw!
