    I’m a birdwatcher. It’s not just for old people anymore. We have some amazing species here in the Pacific Northwest.

    I was watching these birds and it looked like they were performing some sort of mating ritual. After The police knocked on my door and had a discussion with me I realized what I had been watching was just my neighbors getting it on. Simple mistake.

    What does this sound like to non-Australians?

    Sounds like a hospital I once worked in.

    My ex and I used to have 200 acres of old growth forest here in OK, just 30 min out of the city.
    I loved to walk through the woods looking at the birds.
    I catalogued one year,
    I identified 73 species.
    I also cared for a Blue Jay for 11yrs.
    He was an ***!

    It's a parrot native to New Zealand, they called it Kea.

    Yes. I love to bird watch. I am the Bird Whisperer. An emu walked up to me one day. I live in southern California. I guess he was lost. That was my proudest moment. Here is my emu friend. i2hrszmy6d0a.jpg

    Well that doesn't happen often. Should we address you as Emooshi713?


    I don’t watch the birds as much as they watch me when I’m running by :D

    Cobra chickens!!! :D

    Those Cobra chickens watch EVERYTHING!

    And they don't yield to vehicles either. In this area they just often don't migrate, and a few neighborhoods were overrun to the point that the state got involved to remove a bunch of them.




    No good photos to share but we have a fairly large variety in this area. Plenty of marshland birds, and some massive osprey nests to be found. There are a few Bald Eagles in the area as well.

    There was a large Red Tailed Hawk that was dominating the residential area where I live for a couple years. It used the fences of yards to stop easy escape routes for the rabbits. It would often sit on the peak of a house or light post and just observe until a rabbit was in "the zone" and then swoop down silently. It became very efficient at that hunting method, and I saw it grab several rabbits.

    I've spotted a few owls, but they are hard to catch out in the daylight usually. I have an area that I go for deer spotting on my bike (roll in almost silently) and one day found a large owl munching on a snake.
