Hello! I am very new to birding. My fiance got me some binoculars and a field guide for Christmas this year, wondering if it was something I could really get into (I had mentioned an interest before), and I'm finding that I really enjoy it, so far! I still have lots to learn about birds and how to watch them (and possibly photograph). I may be asking for advice or browsing beginners' topics here. Please feel free to recommend any apps or books or whatever else! Thanks!
