  1. I have no idea what I'm doing but I'm gunna (? @Kevin @Quiscalus quiscula) go out on a limb and say juvenile Northern Mockingbird. Disclaimer: This is my first time trying to identify a bird on Whatbird. @Seanbirds insisted that I try to identify something so here goes.
  2. It was my first time driving on the interstate so I was pretty nervous. At one point while I was driving it started raining cats and dogs. I could barely see. But I made it (obviously). The Red-headed Woodpeckers were absurd. Also @Seanbirds forgot that we saw a Ruby-throated Hummingbird crossing the highway soon after we got started.
  3. It seems that there has to be at least one in each family. Sean doesn't really do that, but I love random facts about almost any subject so I'm always spouting useless information.
  4. It has been going smoothly. We're homeschooled like @Quiscalus quiscula so it's pretty low stress. We started August 16
  5. We have several spinoffs on Monopoly including Birdopoly. The game we probably play the most is Scrabble. As @Seanbirds mentioned it can be hard to get the whole family to play sometimes.
  6. Ok. That explains it. I have always been in orchestra with people at least my age or older.
  7. Ok. Did your group last year have a lot of young kids in it?
  8. That's not good. I, thankfully, have never had that experience. Most of the people I have played with have been very capable. In most of the groups I would have older friends that would act as mentors in a way, so that helped me a lot when I first started orchestra. Also I have been blessed with having good concertmasters in my groups.
  9. I have never had a conductor that yelled, although there was one who sorta did the thing you're talking about. With most of my groups we are pretty well prepared heading into rehearsal. My conductors don't have too much to be upset about.
  10. Wow, my experience with conductors is nothing like that, the worst thing my conductors ever did was crack bad jokes. ?
  11. I'll volunteer to hide in @Kevin's house, just so he won't feel left out.
  12. Wow excellent! Thank you @Quiscalus quiscula
  13. Who was the composer of Allegro Molto? I've played Russian Sailor's Dance, and Entrance of the Queen of Sheba.
  14. I love playing in orchestra as well. What are some of the pieces you have played in orchestra, @Quiscalus quiscula?
  15. I love almost all sports. Classical music is pretty much what I do all day, because I plan to be professional musician, so I immerse myself in concertos, symphonies, sonatas, etc. I also enjoy reading, especially biographies.
  16. Just curious, are there any other musicians on here? One of the biggest reasons I haven't got into birding as much is because I've focused so much energy on violin
  17. I have been always the nerd type as well, more eager to learn the scientific names than to actually go out and see the birds!
