My youngest child has just graduated high school, so I've looked for a hobby to fill some of my  "empty nest"  time.

I decided on birding - which to this point has been interesting, but now I want to learn more about the birds I'm seeing!

I'm looking for a good field guide to birds in the eastern United States.  I've put several on my wish list, but thought that perhaps placing a posting on the forum might help.

I just don't know where I should post a request on the forum.  Any suggestions???

The "Pets/Animals" Genre Forum already has some posts like this.

You could ask in the CMT if there are any "birders" in the house!  :D

Sometimes I surf the "books posted today" and find things that work or new ideas for my WL for topics that Im interested in.  It of course opens me up to order stuff I didnt need at all but thats fun too.   You can sort by genre if you dont want to be tempted to look at everything else.

I got distracted -- I read the second letter in "hobby" as a "u". blush

 

From the top of the discussion forums page, you could search all forums for "birding" or "bird watching".  You could then click on a member's name and search his or her bookshelf, or make direct contact by PMing with a question.

 

You could also look at birding books and see if there are any reviews.  If there are, you could look at more reviews by the same member.
