I'm a Bird Nerd. I completed my second season of birding courses in May 2013. I'm an official birder but still have so much to learn. Only with experience will I improve my birding skills. I love watching their behavior. I didn't pay much attention to many birds, only a few. After taking my extensive birding courses, I can appreciate birds to a new level. They do matter to our existence and Eco-system. Here's a young House Finch still with his down like feathers. It's feeding at my bird feeder.
