This was sent to me this last week. Always interested in helping young people enjoy our wonderful hobby.
I just wanted to send you a quick email on behalf of my granddaughter Alyssa. Alyssa is starting the sixth grade this week and this past summer she attended "camp grandma" in between her summer camps. I tried to keep her busy and entertained with a varies of activities. in the beginning of the summer, I introduced her to something I used to do with my father when I was a child, so it has a very special place in my heart. I used to spend hours on my porch with my father searching and trying to identify the birds in our yard. She has really enjoyed bird watching has been doing a lot of research on her own. She specifically loves learning about bird identification and learning more about each bird. Last night, she came across your pagehttp://ebiz.netopia.com/outdoor/pageoflinks. I just wanted to thank you for making it! You have some wonderful information about bird watching and identification that has helped her have a better understanding.
Would you consider adding it for me? I would love to surprise her and show her that her research will help other people all over the world learn more about bird watching and identification. She is so excited to share her no hobby with her teacher and classmates.
Bo Beolens and Randy Minder have put together a new site for birders to get lots of information. Check it out!! You will find guides, destinations, and lots of other information you never knew you wanted to know. "370 destinations, 150 countries, 35 types of tours, WAND has it all".
I just stumbled onto this link while researching for a list of the endemics of the United States. This site is nicely laid out and has a lot of information, so thought I would share it. Just a note. . . I have been looking for months for a list of the endemics of the United States. The owner of this page e-mailed me a list once he knew what I was looking for. If you have any bird related question. . . it would surprise me if you could not find the answer through this resource.
