Hello from illinois.

I live in Kankakee county. I've loved watching birds since I was a kid but never did it more than just casual looking.
I live rurally and get to see a decent range of birds. I even have a nesting pair of bald eagles across the field from my backyard. They've been there since about October.

I'm converting a small telescope with an unserviceable mount into a spotting scope and hope to start taking some decent (amateur) pictures as soon as a backordered part for my scope comes in.

I look forward to reading/responding to these forum posts.
