“I don’t feed the birds because they need me; I feed the birds because I need them.”
― Kathi Hutton
Gila Woodpecker spotted for the first time by us in Salome, Arizona.
Kevin and I were on our morning walk when we spotted the Gila Woodpecker. This is a bird life lister for us. Kevin has a small green booklet he uses for bird sightings. This is called a bird life list. The American Birding Association has specific rules about how bird species should be recorded if a list is submitted to them. However, a personal bird list is up to the individual. I keep track of bird sightings in the back of my Peterson Field Guide and I use this blog for listing birds & other things I enjoy. I like having several bird lists on the blog.
- Dream Birds– birds I hope to identify one day
- Zoo Birds– birds identified in a zoo setting
- Bird Life List– birds I’ve identified
