I just wanted to remind y'all that if anyone wants access to Birds of the World, please message me and I'll get you hooked up.

Respectfully, is this offer strictly for Young Birders as defined by ABA, etc., or is it open regardless of chronological age?

Whether I qualify or not, thanks for looking out for Whatbird members!

It's open to anyone who cannot reasonably pay the subscription cost. For young birders payment is optional, but for financially stable adults, I do expect a small imbursement to mitigate the overall cost of the subscription.

It does, just 4 people are tied at the 97 spot, so the next person below would be rank 101.

I see that.I thought those were also the bottom four people in the county. Silly me. You're right.

BTW, try and be first!

I'm trying to get there! First is a hard place to get, especially being that there are so few birders here that "chasing" a bird is nearly out of the question. You have to find it yourself, none of that just going to see what someone else found, I get that there is not as much competition, but it is still hard having to find every rare bird yourself.

I get it. It's very hard to even get into the top 100 for my county! I'm gonna need to get my county list to at least 310 to get there, probably not going to happen for a few years.

Yeah, I should have explained better. It's a camera drone with a 1" sensor that takes video up to 5.4K. I'd like to use it down in the Amazon this year, to get some cool shots from above.

Here's some videos taken by this drone.

Make sure to share those here!  I loved my times spent on the Amazon. Where are you planning on going?

We have an Amazon warehouse here.  There are several hundred acres of fallow fields nearby, and some retention ponds.  It's a good spot to check a couple of times a year but I certainly wouldn't buy a drone and come here just for that.

What?  A river?  You're kidding.

Thanks, Kevin! My parents have a brief brake from work so we’re going a little bit to some family property for a few days, hopefully I can find something good up there!

Hey, thanks man! Nah don’t be sorry for not being on, that’ll be me in a couple months most likely, sometimes other aspects of life have to take priority for a bit haha

Exactly, there is more to life than a forum... I often have other things to do that are a higher priority too, thus leading to me being offline for a while.

ps. Happy Birthday! @Birding Boy 🎉🎈🥳
