Hi, and welcome to my blog.
I’m a long time birder and amateur photographer hailing from Canmore, Alberta. I don’t go in for super-expensive equipment (as a 13-year old buying all his own stuff, I simply can’t afford it), but I have a Viper Vortex spotting scope, a Canon EOS 80D with an EF 70-300 mm lens, and a pair of Minolta 8X40 binoculars which I take everywhere.
I have been coordinating the Canmore Christmas Bird Count for the last three years, and this past year I organized the Bow Valley’s first ever CBC4Kids, or Kids Christmas Bird Count. I have attended the BowKan Bird Counts since age 6, and I have missed only one of this bi-annual events.
I post regularly about my experiences, birding events in Southern Alberta, and anything else that I find interesting in the birding world. This year I am working on chapters 3, 6 and 7 of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology Home Study Course in Bird Biology, and it is my first and, sadly, last year of homeschooling. I will post occasionally on the blog Birds Calgary as well, sometimes the same or similar posts to those found here.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thank you for visiting, and please enjoy my blog.
