I have noticed that this forum is a LOT more open to talking to everybody instead of just people from your side of the world. I really like it here. I was an active member at a forum called Birder's World before I started blogging, but they are shut down for the next week. The responses that I get here are great! There were times on BirdForum, that it was like I was invisible and felt like a second class citizen.
Thanks for making me feel welcome.
BTW here is a link that didn't even get a response, that I thought was really interesting and would have at least responded to if I had read it on somebody elses post.
