What kind of seagull is that?

How many Canadian geese do you see in that flock?

6 am is too early to do anything on a Sunday morning.

I only own one bird guide.

Oh, I KNOW what a red-tailed hawk looks like.  This wasn’t a red-tailed hawk.

I forgot my binoculars.

I am never birding while I’m at work.

I’m not a competitive birder.

Who would take a vacation to Nebraska?

What’s an IBA?

I hate springtime.

I’ve never participated in Christmas Bird Count.

Audubon, that’s the road in Germany right?

I believe using apps to lure birds with calls is wrong.

I believe using apps to lure birds is just an evolution in birding.

That’s for the birds!

    I wonder if I misunderstood… Audubon encourage the use of apps with bird calls?
