Hi all

Good to see some more young birders signing up to birding-aus and getting into 
birding in general.

I think you'll find teenage birders are few and far between. I still fall into 
that category (just) and have been interested in birding most of my life, but 
there are few others that I know of around here (Perth). I agree with Kurtis' 
suggestion that you join your local birding club. I learnt a lot by getting 
along to some Birds WA excursions and having more experienced birders around to 
learn from. It also gives you the chance to get out to some new places you 
might not have known about or been familiar with before.

Cheers & good birding
John Graff
