Any other birders out here?

I enjoy birding, i also take photos while doing so.

I promised Amazoniantanklvr Amazoniantanklvr that i would share photos of my last birding outing. I didnt see anything particularly special for my area during my last trip out and the weather was rainy and foggy for a lot of it, but it was enjoyable and i got a small handful of photos im happy with.

Nice pics...I enjoy passive bird identification, but wouldn't go so far as to call it "birdwatching" haha. Nice photo of the eagle. My wife and I went to Alaska for our honeymoon, and I remember the bald eagles there are as plentiful as hawks or turkey vultures are here in CT. Anyplace we went, you could always spot a few soaring around on updrafts, it was pretty neat.

Oddly enough, in the past few months my fish club has had two presentations about birds. The first was by one of the club officials who went to Australia on vacation specifically to bird watch. Here presentation was all pictures.

The second presentation was by licensed to keep wild bird expert. He brought a number of live birds for the presentation, He he had one fly across the room to his daughter on whose arm it landed. I had to duck as it almost hit me in the face since she was standing behind me :p There are pictures from the presentation in my club;s newsletter which anyone interested can download here https://northeastcouncil.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=e594e11296ffcb0729d4508a3&id=f2a86d4b7e&e=3b50b37d8e the pictures begin on page 8.

Our fish club has also had non-fish related presentations over the years, usually when they can't get a speaker. We've had the local Medina Raptor Center rehab facility come out with a couple of their owls and hawks, a Medina Metropark volunteer on native wildlife, a Cleveland Museum of Natural History History volunteer on fish fossils and a few others. It's a bit of a change but attendance is still fairly good for these talks and it's nice to see what is available locally.
