Introduction I first started birding (we called it bird watching back then) when I was in grade school living on the plains of Minnesota. My best friend Mike introduced it to me. I never lost interest, but as I grew into a teen and on into adulthood, it wasn't an active hobby. I've always wanted to photograph birds, but found the hobby too expensive. On March 5, 2010 I used some unexpected money to buy a Nikon D90 and a couple of zoom lenses. Other than that expense, the hobby is now practically free. I can take as many digital pictures as I want without buying film or having to get them developed. So I'm back at it, full force, after about 40 years.
