Hello, From Charlotte, NC
I just joined Surfbirds today. Over the last few months, I have enjoyed many hours reading the various forums on Surfbirds. I have enjoyed birding since my early childhood (my grandparents were avid birders). Several years ago, I went from being a "casual birder" to being an "avid birder." I now find myself spending more and more time: observing birds, reading about and studying birds, learning their calls, migration patterns, behavior, etc. The forums on Surfbirds has provided me with a wealth of information. Thanks to all of you!

Nice introduction; it was also my grandfather who kindled my interest in birding, and in fact natural history in general - he was a true "countryman" in the old style.
