Hi there! I'm relatively new to Substack, but I LOVE birds and I love sharing fun facts about them.

If you have the time, please check out my blog and give me a follow or share! :)

Thanks in advance! <3

"I do not enjoy watching birds in a crowd and from roadsides" - yep, I'm there too. It can be fun, a great big party, so it's good to do once in a while - but what I like best about being in nature is just choosing someplace to go to and looking around to find what's there. Nice on the Kittiwake!

Thanks for this story, great comparison. I generally agree but have just photographed a rare-to- Wisconsin Varied Thrush only because of eBird. Have read a lot about birders stressing bald eagles and Snowy Owls in an effort to get "the shot." Live in a rural county so no Mt. Everest scene. Finally I have a favorite summer visitor to Lake Michigan, the Caspian Tern. No -show last summer due to bird flu!

Thank you! I agree. Reminds me of wolf watchers in Yellowstone or bear spotting in Glacier. I much prefer watching a yellow warbler in my yard or the snow geese migration every year. No big crowds but plenty to gawk at.

Enjoyed the blow by blow and learned about new creatures!
