Hello, I'm new here

Hello everyone, I'm new here on the Birds in Backyards site. I've already posted a few topics. I'm still in high school and I haven't had much experience yet (and I do not have the right equipment either) but I'll get better with time and practice. I love birds and photography and I love bird photography even better. Can't wait to start!

Hi and welcome, I am also in high school and love all animals but probably birds the most. I also love bird photography. I hope you will enjoy the forum.

ebird has a wealth of current data. It would be worth exploring, I contribute my sightings to it 

To give you a starting point: 

Victoria Hotspot map- zoom in to see each birdwatching spot that has been visited by ebirders and click for details on what has been seen there
Victoria Overview

Hope this gives you a starting point for your birding endeaveours

Yes, Ebird is great, I have used it to find a lot of great birdwatching spots that I go to often now.
