Yesterday when I heard about the Wood Stork I started trying to figure out how to get there. While I'm trying to plan the trip I get a text back from Andrew Don saying he's going, so I drive down to Bronte and carpool with him. We get to Pelee at 7:35, and successfully get the bird; end up getting back home at like 1:30am! Ontario bird 300, and well worth it!

Now you know how I feel about all these birds showing up in Toronto when I'm away ;)

 

But seriously, I'm sorry, that sucks you can't find anyone to go. :(

It's been a while since I've updated here, but I've had a bunch of exciting stuff going on lately -- got to meet Saw-Whet09 (who is an excellent birder) and get him a few lifers around Colorado Springs, and in a few days I will be going on a few outings with some other YBs. 

Here's a recent list of mine: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S38625465

Also, there are currently SEVEN LITTLE GULLS at a single location in my state. What. is. the. world. coming. to.

Senior year is starting for me... what with AP Chemistry, Calculus, and Statistics, college apps, and probably an SAT subject test or two, this first semester will be quite taxing and busy so I probably won't be on here much. (Also, I'll be trying to get in as much actual birding as possible.)

 

I'll try to check in fairly often. :)

Finally got a chance to do some serious birding today, after being pretty house confined since the YBE in early July. During that whole time I went to my very empty patch twice, went out a few times to a nearby park, and dipped on the Red-necked Stint. It was so nice to actually see some stuff today, and practice with my new camera (a 17th birthday present for me!!) The summer doldrums are ending and migration is picking up around here!

Found my target bird, a Solitary Sandpiper, as well as bonus birds Long-billed Dowitcher, Black-throated Gray Warbler, Yellow Warbler and Warbling Vireo at my first spot. It was cool to see the shorebirds and a nice couple of mixed flocks that just scream FALL MIGRATION!!  My second and third spot were a lot emptier in comparison, but I found some peeps (mostly Western Sandpipers but have a few unIDed ones, forgot my scope) as well as a nice close Kingfisher.

Hey guys! I'm new here.

My name is Matt Hall, I'm a young birder from Pine Island, Minnesota. I joined WhatBird as I saw so many young birders here (I have never met or even talked to a young birder before)! I'm excited to meet you all. If there's anything else you recommend I join other than this, please let me know.

Anyway some more info about me: I've been birding for roughly a year now, have a life list of about 150, but other than that, I don't keep many lists. My spark bird was a Golden-crowned Kinglet in my yard, and is currently my favorite bird!

Hey Matt! Welcome to whatbird!

I'm a 14 year old young birder from Northern VA. How old are you?

Wow, I don't know any young birders from Minnesota. All I really know about that place is the Sax-zim Bog, which looks like an awesome place to bird! Anyway, I hope you enjoy the forum!

They seem like awesome birds! I think you might be able to see them in SE Minnesota if you check ebird and the local listserv for them.

Do you know what discord is? Lots of birders on here are in a group chat on discord, it's really fun! Would you like an invite to the chat?
