6246Re: [CALBIRDS] poll questions
- May 13, 2007Hear hear hear.
I've posted to this list whenever I prepare for a trip outside of Orange
County (and the greater LA Metro area), and the help and recommendations
I've received has been fantastic. I've also enjoyed trip reports from
others because they give me a better idea where to find certain birds. At
present, I've passed the 250-bird mark on my life list, most of which
were within California, so I'm certainly not an expert birder. I'm
constantly learning (and getting egg on my face every other season), and
I'm enjoying adding to my life list. I'm very holistically-oriented; I'm
aware of how much birds impact surroundings and surroundings impact
birds. So backyard birds, beached birds, migrating flocks changing their
itineraries, and the like, all such reports interest me very much.
None of this would have been possible if Calbirds had narrowed its scope.
Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
(PS/ I've been trying to find a statewide or a local group for New Mexico
birding on YahooGroups, since
I'll be in Santa Fe mid-July -- to no avail. Anyone? Thanks! sj)
