What a great guy ! I'm primarily a hunter and angler, but enjoy other outdoor activities, including trying to get to know more species of non-game birds as well as getting to know different kinds of trees better. I see kindred spirtits in those engaged in other pursuits. He's doing a great service to our state through his observations and what they are telling us about habitat degradation.

Love it! Birds are great fun to have around and feeding stations are easy to set up and maintain. I take some in at night because of racoons and was pleasantly surprised to find two flying squirrels feeding on sun flower seeds at one station the other night.
