I’m Naomi. I live in upstate NY on the suburban/rural divide.
I’m using birdwatching as a mental discipline. I have watched birds for years, sometimes observing behavior and sometimes getting all obsessive about ticking off lists. I hope to maintain this blog somewhere in between, using it as a tool to practice focus, memory, attention. I also want to get better at photography and take some photos worth sharing.

When I have given up in despair on taking an adequate bird portrait, I will sometimes use photos others have taken. These will always be properly attributed with ©Source.
