Pete Dunne's "Secret to Becoming a Great Birder"

Though this was published in the American Birding Association's "Winging It" online publication last spring, I just ran across it. I think Pete makes some excellent points that bear emphasizing: ". . .Don’t just look at them. Don’t just identify them. Watch them, study them, learn what they look like at different angles and different postures."

And Pete Dunne goes on to describe how important it is to do more than just check the birds off your list. Read the full article.

The only thing I would add to Pete's article is that a great birder must be an active conservationist.
