Birds

My dad got me interested in birds. I’m not sure what the impulse was that made me start listing while on a date with my future wife to Great America Amusement Park. I guess I just thought it would be a fun place to start my list. I suppose the ultimate goal is to see every bird on earth, but that’s not going to happen. Some birders have seen over 700 species in North America (north of Mexico) and several thousand worldwide. I’ll be content if I see 500 in North America and get a chance sometime to bird overseas.
