Introducing Myself!

Hi everybody! (That's an eastern wood-pewee up there.) I'm from north Mississippi. This is my new nature blog called "Birds, Etc.". I am a twelve-year-old homeschooler with six brothers, aged 15, 8, 6, 6, (twins) 4, and 1. I have been addicted to birds and nature my whole life. I also love photography, so this blog will have a lot of pictures on it. I am also Catholic. My favorite birding places I've been are: Strawberry Plains Audubon Center in Holly Springs, MS, and Lichterman Nature Center in Memphis, TN. Even though we live in the suburbs, we have 5 acres and plenty of birds. We used to live in upstate New York, but in August, 2010 we moved down here. I have 143 species of birds on my life list, and I hope to add more. My favorite bird species is the Eastern bluebird.
Now some random facts about me.
Favorite food: Cheesecake!! Yum!
Favorite activity: Birding
Favorite sport: soccer
Pets: Chickens (10 of them!)
That's all I could think of. Enjoy the blog! :-)

  2. Thanks, Scottish Gal! I love your blog too!

  3. We love your blog and think it is cool. Great pics. Can't wait to see more posts. Caroline wants to do one too.

  4. The bird you called an "eastern phoebe" is actually a eastern wood-pewee! The bird in your picture has an orange lower mandible, not a black one, hence confirming that your bird is a eastern wood pewee. Hope this helps.

    1. You're right! I must have overlooked that. Thanks for telling me!
