Currently My Birding Life List is 387 species.

I started birding when we moved to Colorado in 1986 and at this time I began keeping track of the birds I saw for the very first time.

It is a fun hobby that can be done anywhere – out your window at home, in your backyard, walking along a trail or from your car. All you need is a fairly good pair of binoculars.
