Any interest in a Birding Group?
there are a few bird watchers in the Outdoor Life Group. I would love a Birder Group.

4. I feed Canadian Juncos during the winter
They normally show up in late September and leave in late March. I've done it for about 15 years now.

It's amazing to me that the little creatures know where to come.

But I'm really not a birder.

10. The Indigo Bunting is how I got interested in birding. Good idea!
We just need a couple more star members to show interest.

16. Sign me up!
I moved from a house to an apartment for a few months and miss my backyard birds. I'm looking forward to moving to Texas and feeding the "Texas pigeons" that abound there.

22. I'm interested!
I believe that is how we originally learned to sing, by listening to the beautiful language of birds.

Birds gave us the gift of music.

24. Sure!
I'm not an official "birder," and it's been a few years since I spent time with my binoculars and field guides. Most of my time out in the hills is spent on a horse that won't hold still long enough for me to focus my lenses, lol. But I pay close attention to what I can see without my glasses.

I also pay attention to the plants and other critters, so I'd be up for a "nature watching" group, too. :hi:
