  1. Thanks Kathleen – getting more people enjoying and seeing the birds is the important thing. I hope it helps.

  2. Thank you so much for this generous gift of a free download of Arboretum Birding (2015). I so look forward to learning more about this site I love and visit regularly (with my dog, with whom I aim to be entirely respectful of birders and birds). Much appreciated!
