Thanks! Unfortunately it’s pretty high up and distant, so unfortunately no 5 star shots of a Gyrfalcon haha. I’ll upload the actual photos later.

……..no rush. (Well, I must see it, so sort of a rush, lol. ) seriously though. No rush.

All I got was the Vireo but that's still a BIG plus!! I really wanted one of those.

 

At this point, any lifer has got to be a really good one.

Finally got my drivers permit last week (one of the last people in my grade at school to do so), but unfortunately haven't been able to use it since I've been really sick for the last week and have been stuck in bed.

Feel better!

God knew we all wanted to live a little longer ?

But all kidding aside, congrats and don't sweat being 'behind'. I was 17 before I got mine and signed up for drivers ed - by the time I finished the class I had over 40,000 miles under my belt, was one of the first ever to score a 100% on my final drive test, ... and STILL got in a minor at fault accident within a couple weeks of getting my license! ?   Thankfully my only other accident since (other than just me pushing the limits in the snow) was backing my truck into my wife's new van in my own driveway on a dark, rainy night. 3 days after getting it and before she had ever even driven it! Not good.?

My niece and nephew-in-law were visiting several years ago.  I completely forgot they were parked in the driveway, backed out of the garage, and scraped the entire passenger side of their new minivan with my beater Ranger.  They were cool about it, and were impressed with the speed of the insurance settlement.

Speaking as someone who somehow made it to 39 before taking my drivers test neither of you were behind in the slightest. There's hope for everyone on this, though I wouldn't encourage anyone to follow my example...
