How's is it going fellow birders? Just want to say hello from New Mexico and look foward to meeting some of you and learning as much as possible from your experiences. Its hard to find fellow birders to go on hikes and walks with, so I found this forum and hopefully meet some cool people willing to share. I have always been an outdoors guy but for some reason, my life has really changed focus and birds are just my thing now. I get excited with newly discovered species (new to me) and I feel in touch with my soul when I am outside. Cheers and look forward to talking with you. Also, I saw my first wild Bald eagle today which was exhilarating.
