Late Addition to the BIGBY

Hi all,

I finally "bit" and joined the WI BIGBY about 1/4 of the year in. Bird of the day: chimney swift! Spotted from my apartment window on this otherwise rainy, cold day in Madison.

A little about me...I'm studying the response of forest songbirds to extreme climate events. I started at UW Jan 2012, so I've lived in Wisconsin a little over a year. I've really enjoyed getting to know a new community of birds and birders, far different from my last residence of SC!

I'm a member of the Great Wisconsin Birdathon team "Bird So Hard." We're currently raising funds for WI bird habitat, and there's an awesome deal at stake: if you donate $25+ to our team, you'll be entered to win a pair of Eagle Optics Rangers 8x42, generously donated by our sponsors! Please help us out!

I live in the near west, and I don't own a bike! My stomping grounds are Lakeshore path to Wingra. Will keep you posted on my progress.
