Thought now would be a good time to flex my extremely high tech recording station 😎😂

That looks about like an oversized version of what my brothers and I would make out of a couple of tin cans and a wire in order to communicate with each other over distances that could have been traversed by a horse whisper:classic_smile:

👋 Hey everyone!  @Quiscalus quiscula finally dragged me in and convinced me to join, so... here I am! My knowledge of birds is pretty, ahem, limited, but I've been accompanying her on our small birding trips and hopefully I will slowly learn more. 

Yes, she's learning more about birds though, and better at spotting them than I. She also does the driving.

@Sialia sialis Welcome!!  That's so nice of you to take @Quiscalus quiscula on birding trips.

I enjoy myself too, so generally it's a win-win! Unless there are a ton of mosquitoes... some regrets may appear then 😅. Occasionally all I do is circle her, guarding her from mosquitoes, while she stares through her binoculars.

Now there are two of them!! 😛

Welcome to the forum!

And yep, two of us! I also just had to match my sister's username style in some way.

Also, I co-lead my first field trip today for the local Audubon group! Thankfully, it went quite well, it was tricky trying to get everyone on the warblers...I managed to get someone his lifer Blackburnian though. Don't know if I'll be doing it again, but it was a fun experience. 60 + species, including first of fall Gadwall and Golden-crowned Kinglet.

Wow, great! I'm hoping for Golden-crowned Kinglet this winter, I've only seen Ruby-crowned.

Nice! Wish I had had a little more creativity back when I made my username haha

You should be able to get 'em easily! This was the first of presumably many and they often stay into December, and your area of NY isn't too different from here.
