Another Canberra Newbie

Hi, I'm 14 and I've been really into birdwatching for almost a year. I'm on 117 species in the ACT for 2015, most of which I've photographed, and my sightings can be viewed on ereama ebird. I've been using this forum for identifications for a while, and love seeing the photos on the best photos section. They are magnificent. Hopefully, I'll get around to posting some there soon, as I love photography, although I don't have a DSLR yet, so the photo quality isn't exceptional.

Hi Hellobirdy!

Welcome, personally I think that 'best photos' is a bit of a misnomer that leads us amateurs to think our photos might not be welcome, but in fact they are. The 'best' that is referred to is the best you can do!

That is quite a lot of birds!

Looking forward to seeing your photos.

Welcome to the site and hope you post many photos of the birds you are seeing, whatever the quality.

A warm welcome from sunny Brisbane.

Yes please post some pics.

This site focusses more on the bird than the quality of the pic, so don't be afraid to put some up.




Welcome HelloBirdy .... thats a good total you are working towards in 2015.

Would also encourage you to post some photos so we can see the birds that you are finding in your area.
