Yesterday was the second anniversary of my becoming a birder. Two years ago I took my first picture of a bird – a Brown Thrasher.
A new camera, a photography class and 2 years of experience and ta da! Here’s the last new bird I photographed in my second year – a Western Grebe.
It’s fun to keep track of how many new birds I’ve seen, but the numbers aren’t really important. I truly love going for a walk just to see what birds I can find. It’s exciting! You never know what you might see around the next corner. Plus I’ve found a wonderful community of birders who are happy to share their knowledge and expertise. Thank you to them, and Happy Anniversary to me!
