My name is Skyler and I am a 12 year old boy who lives in Ft. Collins Colorado. I have been birding for 2 years and my life list is 402. For me a junior big year was enspired by another young birder. Today it is December 18th and I thought I would start blogging today and get an early start. My goal is to get over 400 birds which defently is not as good as some of the harder more experiencenced birders but starting young is always good. In 2012 I plan on doing trips to California,Arizona/New Mexico/Texas, Kansas/Missouri, Alaska, and possibly Oregan. We will also be looking for rarities around our home base, Ft.Collins. I will post weekly or more often when on a trip.
