Thanks Kim!

I will be posting now and then for sure! I have already looked around and I did see the board for posting the birds that you see. It's raining pretty good here today so I don't have any outings planned for today. My rain gear is in my camping trailer. LOL

Anyone here from Idaho or Utah?

Hi there all,

My husband and I like to camp and try to find new birds when we can. We also chase after a few "here and there" right here in our town of Boise, Idaho. Look forward to sparking and being sparked! emoticon

Good to have you aboard Lorie. Thank goodness you were able to save the Duck. I bet he was a happy camper!

My name is Lorie, I love watching birds, we have lots of chickadees, humming birds, eagles, finches, orioles, woodpeckers, nuthatches and more. We have done bird rescue many times. Even when we were visiting in a place in Florida, my daughter and myself rescued a large white duck from becoming alligator bait. it had a fishing line wrapped tightly around its leg so it could not fly and the line had a hook in it and the hook had caught a garbage bag and so the poor duck with badly swollen leg was not moving very well. But we saved it, and with a quack of thanks it left with it's friends.

All Because Of God's Amazing Grace, Lorie

We get a Falcon that visits our yard now and then. We also have Red Railed Hawks in our area, and sometimes Turkey Vultures.

I never pay attention to the "small" or songbirds that migrate in the fall. I usually just notice the Canada Geese in the fall. It is the springtime when I see the small or songbirds.

Good luck!

Slow moving cold front is headed toward the Gulf Coast. I am hoping that it is filled with Warblers and other neo-tropic migrants for an exciting weekend looking at birds.

I haven't been back to Oak Openings since this Spring. I would love to go again. I don't get there that often, obviously. This weekend I am going to Castalia, OH to an animal rehab center called Back to the Wild. I emailed the founder about becoming a volunteer, so she asked to meet with me this Sat. Sounds like a great place to go.

Hi! I often go birding at Oak Openings in the spring. I love the Lark Sparrows, Red-headed Woodpeckers, Summer Tanagers and Blue Grosbeak. It is a great park in Toledo, OH.

Check out the new thread on making a backyard habitat. There may be some info on the websites posted or just look up "rain garden" on the internet. Please post those questions/answers/websites you find on that thread so we can see them rather than the introduction forum. Thanks!

Welcome. I enjoyed your pictures especially the cedar wax wing. I haven't seen any yet this year. If you want better birds in your yard your best bet is to create a wildlife habitat for them. My house had a scrawney oak 20 years ago but it has grown and I have planted understory trees, deciduous and evergreen bushes for the birds to take refuge in. I've also included many native woody plants and flowers along with a rain garden. The birds are really enjoying the raingarden for mud and scraps for their nests.

Hi Trayce! Welcome to the team. I live in Toledo and I love birds of prey also. Right now I am working as a volunteer researcher for the Oak Openings area (here in Toledo) on a Breeding Raptor Research program. What I do is I am assigned to a certain area (local park) to look for signs of raptors (birds of prey) in that area and make any notes of what I find and submit the info the park. I have been watching a Cooper's Hawk nest, but couldn't find it the last time I was out. It has been raining so much that it had been a while since I was last out and the trees popped there leaves and I was having a hard time finding it. Also there is a a Barred Owl's nest that I heard has juveniles, but I haven't seen them yet. I need to go back to look again, maybe tomorrow. Now I am also volunteering as a butterfly monitor - basically the same kind of research for the area. It is a lot of fun and also relaxing.

What I would love to do someday is become a falconer in the State of Ohio. It takes a lot of money and especially time, which neither I have at this point. I did join the Ohio Falconry Assc, but dropped it for now. I met local guy that is a master falconer and went to see his Red Tail, her picture is on my page. She has since died and he got a new one.

So right now I am considering going back to school and studying Enviromental Science so I can be a wildlife biologist.

I will have to check out your pictures later.

My name is Tracye,
I love watching and taking photos of birds.
My favorite are birds of prey.
I live in Cincinnati, Ohio I have been trying to entice birds to my yard with feeders and fruit. Mostly I get sparrows,doves and starlings. But sometimes I get lucky. Two days ago I saw four cedar waxwings in my mullberry tree. I didnt know what they were and had to look it up.
My husband and I go canoeing a lot mostly on Whitewater River. There we see Hawks, Osprey and my favorite, The Bald Eagle. I'm including links to some of my photos if your interested.
Glad I found this team, looks like fun. www.flickr.com/photos/62191883@N07/5
