Whatbird's Young Birders!

Recommended Posts

Hi there ūüėÉ, sorry to bud in here as an adult. I saw this post on FB by a birder , Kurt Radamaker in ¬†my maricopa county in AZ.¬†FYI to those of you interested in books. I am now out of this forum(PS: sorry I didn‚Äôt know where else to post this )

Dear Birders,

I have been collecting bird books most of my adult life, as I'm getting closer to retirement I'm in less need of the books. I'd like the books to go to some young birders for cheap Off the top of my head.
1, Bird life of Texas 2 volume set in slipcase - selling online for $150.00
2. Birds of the Republic of Panama 4 volume set with dust covers.
3. Birds of California (Dawson) 3 volume set - student edition, good shape - selling online for $250.00
4. Oceanic Birds of South America (Murphy) 2 volume set - good shape
5. Distribution of Birds of California (Grinnell and Miller)

If you are looking for a particular bird book, just ask, I may have it and be willing to let it go. No resellers please. If interested please email me @ kurtrad@mexicobirding.com

By the way, I meant every Friday at 12:45 for the yearlists, not every day

I'm still the same number as below, not going to change much!

I'll post the first yearlist update this Friday. I hope once we start we'll get more people interested. Anyone can join if they'd like!

I got my lifer N. Saw-whet Owl last night!  My Dad got hit in the head by an owl, most likely a NSWO. 

Got hit? How? Did it fall or something, or did it dive bomb him?

We were standing in the road and we were using playback intermittently and he felt something graze his head.¬† and heard what almost sounded like wings hitting something.¬† Sorry for no details.¬†ūüėĚ

Hi all!! Sorry I haven't been on in a while

I wanted to update:

Yesterday I went on the Clermont Christmas bird count. we saw 86 Sp. (I saw 85 personally), including a rarities 1 Snail Kite, 15 Rusty Blackbirds and 20 Barn Swallows.

My 2019 yearlist is 87 after yesterday. I got 4 lifers (Easter Screech-owl, Eastern Meadowlark, Vesper Sparrow and Rusty Blackbird) which brings my lifelist to 192.

Also got 14 county lifers, which brings my county list to 118.
