It's not that funny if you're me! Since I'm constantly spouting random bird facts and scientific names, my sisters are trying to get back at me.

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.

I think I'm a little like that. I memorized 57 digits of pi. Yes I do have a calculator, so maybe it would be easier to use it:)

My father-in-law would be proud of you :classic_cool:  just retired from being a high school math teacher. And yes, he had a student one year who didn't even know what leap year was and her birthday was ON FEBRUARY 29TH!   Sometimes you can't even teach a young pup new tricks.

Sorry, it was a funny recording in which several people were attempting to get a Ridgway’s Rail out of some reeds. There’s some semi-bad language (Which kinda makes it funny) so it can’t be directly posted here. But if it is re-uploaded somehow I’ll link it in my profile so it can be enjoyed by all. 

In other words when my 3 year old daughter wants to watch a bird video or play song from Macaulay I'd better steer clear of Rails in addition to parrots

How are y'all liking school this year? 

It's definitely busy. I started three days ago, but I'm already in the routine of Waking Up, going to school, going to water polo, eating dinner, doing homework, then going to bed with no real free time. I'm already up to 2-3 hours of homework a day, and I haven't received any major assignments yet.  It won't help that soon I'll have to do some clubs to add to the college resume soon. However, it's fun and academy challenging, and it seems like Sophomore year you have somewhat of a freedom. Not as hard academically as your Junior year, and not pushed around and rushing to learn everything like Freshman year.

Cool! A lot of Whatbirders on here are homeschoolers as well, actually.

I've noticed this is the case. I was homeschooled when I was most active on the site about 10 years ago. I actually started the original YB thread! I think we would add like 2-3 new pages of posts to the topic every day. 

Whatbird also used to have a chatroom. I had to kick at least two people off the forums for saying inappropriate things in the chatroom lol.

I should be able to get it back. I’m friends with the people in the recording.

Does this audio exist anywhere? Sounds entertaining

I take a lot of stuff to prevent getting sick and keep my immune system up good and strong, like kiefer milk, elderberry, lemon, ginger, honey...

Okay. Next time you should drink it with honey. It's good stuff, but you shouldn't take it straight. My mother will occasionally drink apple cider vinegar with honey.

Yeah, putting some honey is helpful, most of the time I dilute it with water.
