I want to send a great big THANK YOU to all of you that have viewed my "Birdn Blog" the last couple  of weeks in response to Nery's requests. I want to thank Nery for sending out an e-mail to everyone asking you to look at my blog. It worked, you all have put a smile on my face. Thank you to all those of you who have passed it along via e-mail or facebook. We have had hits in Germany, Canada, England, Australia, Greece, Japan, Philippines, India, Russia, Spain, Africa, Mexico, Belize and many places in the United States. Also a big thank you to those of you who have been following this blog for a while.
The purpose of this blog is to log my birding adventures and share the pictures I take but most of all to introduce people to birds and nature.

The thing that thrills me is when people who are not birders start noticing birds and calling, e-mailing or just telling me "I saw this bird" and then start describing it to me, and then how pleased they are when I am able to help them identify what kind of bird it is. I feel like my blog is a success.
It also thrills me when people tell me after seeing a bird, "I had no idea we had birds like that around here". Because I know they have learned something new and will be much more aware and appreciative of nature around them.
If you have gained a better appreciation for birds and nature, if you have learned something new, if you are more aware of and notice the diversity of birds. Then my blog is a success.
Thanks again for your support and please visit once in a while and if you feel like it, please post a comment. or just enjoy. 
Sincerely Steve
