Hello. I am currently participating in the ABA Young Birder of the Year contest. I just joined NCIOS, so some of my first entries will be backdated. I have been birding for 6 years, and volunteer at Sand Bluff Bird Observatory. I won 1st place in Ornithology at the State Science Olympiad Tournament in Urbana, IL.
