Howdee all,

John Briggs~ Bath, Maine

John and his wife Sharon have been involved in birding for over 25 years. His favorite birding areas are Plum Island, Ma., Biddeford Pool, Me., and Campobello Island, NB.
Favorite bird: chickadee

My passion for bird watching began 30 years ago when I was stationed on the USMC base at Camp Pendleton, CA. Ever since that day, I have recorded 466 species to my life list from every state, except Hawaii, and four countries. My list features birds that were seen as I do not count birds for life list inclusion that are only heard. Photography became a passion just a mere 8 years ago and I have been honing my skills ever since. I love being outdoors, blogging about my experiences and sharing with the world how I see nature and all that she has to offer.

You will agree, after looking at the photos below, that John has definitely done a great job of “honing” his photography skills.

I had a very difficult time weeding out photos ..so I have included more than I would normally. 🙂

Thank you for featuring my blog Dawn! Although my studies keep me from posting as much as I would like to, once I graduate I will be back to posting on a more regular basis.

My sincere thanks goes out to all those who have visited, commented, and tweeted. Without my followers, the site would just be another blog lost in the bramble of the world wide web.

I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels. Happy birding!
