I was wondering if there were any other forum members who enjoy bird-watching (birding). It started for me several years ago when my wife bought her mother a bird feeder as a gift, but she didnt accept it thinking the kids in her neighborhood would only steal it. Anyway, I ultimately ended up with the feeder. I started noticing the birds off and on but paying them little mind. It wasnt long before I had three more feeders in the yard and I was cataloging what species of birds were visiting using your basic backyard birders guide. Since then, Ive collected a variety of books on migration patterns as well as ornithology text books. I go out as often as I can but have been limited by the short winter days. Ive recently relocated from Pennsylvania to the southern coast of Maine which has opened up the scope of my bird watching. There are many species which are found here that are uncommon if appear at all in PA. Well, there it is, are there any other bird-watchers on the forum?
