Hello. I wouldn't consider myself a birder just yet, I know little about birds, and don't have a camera, yet...but that's why I'm studying.

I have had a passion for all animals/nature since I was 4. I am a person who watches Animal Planet all the time! I love to explore. I have seen tons of birds, snakes, deer, raccoons, turtles, ect.

*Edit* Where's my manners?

It's very good to know that others share a passion for birds.

I know, it's awesome isn't it!?!?^^

There's many informative shows on there. (Maybe that was a bit too off-topic...)

If you want to reply, just PM me.

Wouldn't worry, talk about what you want.

It's as much your thread as mine, and besides, 'thread evolution' can be quite interesting. Let's see where it ends up!

Well, ok, I'm going to the grand opening of the new facilities at the Conwy RSPB reserve, and Nick is going to be cutting the ribbon.

I'll be doing some birding too, maybe even go very early.

Wow! Snow already! What sort of temperature is it? It's still getting up to 15C most days where I live, although that is exceptional for the time of year

As for editing posts, you can now no longer edit posts that you did more than 24 hrs away - can't remember the reason(s)

I hear that. Started a thread on different names for the same birds on opposite sides of the pond, and it became a bunch of "old guys" talking about brands of beer! If you want to see how that came around, go here:

Pileated Woodpeckers look great on the pictures I've seen (thanks to the wonderful Google) - I'm envious!

lol, Yeah, I was just walking through the woods, heard knocking, looked over, and there was this beautiful Pileated Woodpecker-Not even 10 feet from where I was!^^ So I just froze and marveled at this awesome bird.

Didn't they take google image search down? O.o
