birding clubs not always bad. (1 Viewer)

I read one of the threads recently where everyone was turned off by birding clubs. I went on a walk this morning on a slightly rainy day and had a good experience over all. The birding itself was slow. It appears we were probably a week too early for peak migration action. We did see a myrtle warbler, Eastern Towhee , red bellied woodpecker peaking out of its nesting hole, 10 blue herons, and a double breasted cormorant along with the usual. Our group was 1/2 beginners and 1/2 experienced. One leader was an older fellow with a bum leg who did his best to hobble through the woods and new his stuff. The other leader was a nature activist who was like a throwback from the sixties who knew lots of details about the enviroment. He passed along handy information about books, birding spots , and general enviromental information. Nobody bragged about their binoculars or their birding abilities. I had a good time. :bounce:

Caffeine fiend.
One of the best things I’ve done in recent times is to join in bird forum.

You’re the best.

Taking up running back in 1982 will always be tops.

Sorry!

I agree wholeheartedly about birdforum but I am in general not a club joining kind of person.
