The International Ornithologist union divides the birds of the world into 10,612 species. Keeping a list of all species you have seen is a fun way to keep you looking into bushes, and visiting new places. I keep a list of all bird species I have seen; It is available here.
Before I was a falconer, I was a birder. I love the thrill of searching for a bird I have never before seen, as well as watching my old favorites come and go with the seasons. I have had the privilege to go birding on four continents, and look forward to a lifetime of searching, and the world to explore.
