If anyone has a question or would like to make a comment, please let us know via this chat!
I’m interested in getting started. I like the idea of looking for a purpose; to pick a focus.
Mark Garland from Cape May told me years ago to not let anyone define what birdwatching is – it is whatever brings you enjoyment and meaning as you learn about birds. It gave me the courage to give up keeping a list and I’ve never looked back!
I disagree somewhat with the statement on photography going backwards. My sister and I consider ourselves field birders and use our cameras for a later identification tool. We're not in the field to primarily photograph!
I agree with Karen. Photos of birds I remember but will never see again bring me great joy.
Thanks I wrote down the titles of some as you were speaking.
I used to be on a board of the international crane foundation in WI but how does one even get started as a birder or watcher? live in dc area
eBird would probably be the best way to convert a journal. eBird allows you to put birds in as an archival entry.
I have successfullyy transcribed hundreds of old checklists to eBird.
Thank you for the encouragement to use eBird
I feel the same way when people talk about "invasive species". These birds have been here for a very long time!
Thank you John. Wish I could stay on to listen to the rest of the questions, but I have another ZOOM event soon. Happy Birding! I will utilize some of what I heard today in your excellent presentation!
Yes, EXCELLENT presentation! Thank you!
Do you think that Explore.com is useful?
Audubon Naturalist Society in Chevy Chase is a good group for DC area
They host a Field Naturalist Certificate program that is very good for the Study aspect
