I really started being interested in nature at 9 years old and now am 10! I've always had a strong love in nature. My Dad is @dan_macneal. My spark bird (The bird that made you interested) is a American Woodcock. I live in Guelph Eramosa. I'm very interested in birds (especially shorebirds and their allies and waterfowl) and getting into funguses and lichens, insects, reptiles and amphibians. When I am older I want to travel the world doing Quest Nature Tours and making books about nature! My favourite bird sound calls is a screech Owl and the American Woodcock. My goal is to get to 500 species of birds before 2023... currently am at 242 (Not counting hybrids) and 245 (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 stuff or observing it!!
