I started birding just over three years ago. My interest in birds came almost out of nowhere. In the fall of 2009, I took my bird to the vet, where I realized that there are adults who work with birds for a living. The moment I had that realization, I was done for.
It’s not very often that I see kids out birding, which is surprising. That’s not to say birding is easy, just that I know it is something lots of kids would like. I’ve done birding presentations at schools, mainly for younger kids such as 1st or 2nd graders.
Many of the readers of this blog have been birding for years, and finding cool and rare birds has become second nature. But does anybody remember what it was like when they were starting out?
