Welcome to the very first posting of the 10,000 Birds blog.  As thrilled as you undoubtedly are, I am even more so.  This is my first web log and my first attempt to speak directly to the world regarding our great love of bird-watching.  You will be kind, won’t you?

While we (The Core Team) have an enormous interest in birding, we have meager experience.  We have a boatload to learn about bird calls, habitat, behavior, etc.  We also have yet to meet members of the larger BIRDING COMMUNITY, of which perhaps you, the reader, are a part.  This site promises to be a venue through which we can share all of the lessons and observations that accompany what promises to be a life-long learning process.  We hope that those of you with experience will be generous with your insights.  We also hope that those of you who are also new to birding, or perhaps just flitting around the edges, will learn along with us and share our enthusiasm.

Please enjoy yourself and have a look around while I attend to the more technical aspects of web-building.  Tomorrow will be the first bird-related post.
