Hey there, my name's Desmond MacNeal.

I really started being interested in nature at 9 years old and my passion has only grown stronger since then (currently I'm 13). My Dad (@dan_macneal) has been a big help with all the things I know now and I wouldn't have gotten to this point without him. Thanks Dad. My spark bird (the bird that made me interested in birds) is the American Woodcock. I'm located within Guelph Eramosa, doing most of my birding in Wellington (unless I'm chasing a rarity). I'm best with the Birds and Herps of Ontario but getting better with insects and fungi. My goal is to see 500 species of birds before 2023 (hopefully most with pictures)... currently I'm at 437 (Not counting hybrids) and 431(counting hybrids). I was formerly using a Canon Powershot SX50 HS for taking pictures and now I have a Nikon P900.

I am very eager to learn more, so please tell me when I have made a mistake identifying something or observing it.
I've started an umbrella project called Bird Eggs of Canada and under the project I have made diffrent projects for each province or territoy's bird eggs. Simply annotate your egg observsation -In Canada- as Life Stage=Egg.

The picture on the left is me in Ontario at the Spruce Boardwalk, Algonquin Provincial Park.
