Wow! I don't think any of my experiences can beat birding with Roger Tory Peterson. How wonderful!

I would love to hear your birding tales. I bet your stories are wonderful Lillie.

I am a senior birder.  Don't do much these days but have had the most glorious experiences in Costa Rica.  Also, went birding with Roger Tory Peterson.  Priceless.  Look forward to hearing of others experiences.

Woodpeckers on my roof

Much as I don't like them pecking on my house, I love them in the garden. Fun to watch and hear.
