Positions and Achievements

I have lived in Philadelphia for 10 years but only started birding over this past winter. I always had an interest in birds and flight, watching the feeders intently growing up in Connecticut being able to ID all of the regular visitors and marking FOY dates in our family field guide with my mom. Last fall I read The Meaning of Birds by Simon Barnes and my interest was re-sparked so I purchased a pair of binoculars. I have been exploring all of the local Philadelphia hot spots, learning a ton, and seeing loads of first time species. I am still very much a novice, but am excited to continue to learn and explore our region in search of new birds!
