I'm hooking up with the Carolina Bird Club for the first time this weekend.  They're running over 30 trips to over 25 locations from Fri. through Sun.  I've never been with an formal organization before, just on group walks scheduled by parks, etc.  I'm braced for my ego to get well bruised.

I had an amazing day yesterday! I went to the Intermountain Bird Observatory in Boise and watched them band birds. The morning they banded songbirds, in the afternoon we hawkwatched, and then they banded owls all night! It was amazing. Highlights:

They also caught a harrier in the hawk nets! It was super cool to see him close up. They also caught a Tennessee Warbler, a really cool bird for Idaho! I was able to hold a lot of the birds including the saw whets and coopers hawks. They let me release a lot of the songbirds! It was awesome.

Not a bad weekend.  55 species, including 7 lifers and 1 more still under review.  I'm proudest of the Wilson's Snipe, since I spotted it after everyone else in the group had passed it, and I was able to get some easily ID'ed photos.

Wow, congrats!

Yeah. Now I'm a part of the iNaturalist discord and I've learned my lesson - keep my mouth shut.

So I don’t get banned, what should I not talk about? You can DM me if you’d like to keep your political leanings private or not DM me at all if you don’t want to tell me at all. If that makes sense.
