    When did you start watching birds?

    I was in 6th grade and remember this moment well. I loved science since kindergarten, so I always looked at books of that theme. Well, among the school library's books was the Golden Guide to Eastern Birds. I was fascinated by this book so much, wanting to see all the birds illustrated. This...

    Is this a Kestrel?

    I would have called it a Merlin if I saw that in America. That's why I read the threads on here, to help improve ID skills.

    It wasn't a meadowlark. I know this picture isn't going to help, but meh, shows the size of it kind of. The bird in question is the one to the far left.

    Southern Michigan USA, blurry picture coming later...

    I am at my aunt's house because I lost power. Me and my aunt were outside when a bird landed on the ground near her feeder. She saw it better than I did, but I declaired it a Horned Lark. We got a fuzzy photo of the bird with my cell phone, but because my phone is roaming and my aunt doesn't...

    North American Birders - Great Backyard Bird Count Feb. 18th-21st, 2011

    I did a couple of counts on my own yesterday, and today I went on a very snowy bird hike led by a field ornithologist as a GBBC activity. It was fun. I spent a lot of time looking over a Cedar Waxwing flock looking for a Bohemian, but no luck. I sometimes post on a local email list, and a few...

    Crossley Guide

    I got a copy because I had it shipped as soon as it came out. I personally liked it. Okay, so some plates have too many birdies on it... but I liked all the different angles of the actual birds. What I didn't like about it: The brief text uses bander's codes... it's a bit confusing, probably...

    Unknown bird, De Haan (coast), Belgium

    Could it be a Storm Petrel of some sort? I know, I know, I'm not very good at this, but that was my first though.
