identifying the bird is the next step after that. maybe i will write something on that.
my fat cat Harriet is licking my left palm. she is the only cat i've ever met who slobbers when she licks you. blecch.
I'm pretty new to birding, but I like Sibley's Birding Basics. I've been enjoying looking at your blog, by the way. It first caught my attention because of the birds, but I've enjoyed the other postings too.By Eva, at 10:39 PM

will look up Sibley's, its a good start. if you're in the Midwest there are several good listserves to join where people post their birding observations. Try ILbirds@yahoogroups.com, which is for Illinois, also ChicagoBirder.org, which is the chicago ornithological society and has good links to birding org's in other areas.
If the women in my family were any more mad about birds, we'd sprout wings. My DH gave me a book for Christmas called "How to be a Bad Birdwatcher" by Simon Barnes which simply says that just about anyone would be surprised at how much they knew about birds. It's a really nice read, even for the more ornithologically advanced. :)By galetea, at 8:19 AM
