16-year old Nathan Goldberg is all fired up about birds. What starts such an interest and where can it lead? Here's Nathan: "One day at the Brookfield Zoo, I saw a Wood Duck, and I said to myself, 'When I get older, I'm going to see that bird, but in the wild!' When I started birding I thought, 'Cool, there's a ton of species out there and I'd love to see them all.' Now I'm meeting people that have kept a life list of every bird they've ever seen in their life, and I said to myself, 'This is awesome! This is not just being out in the wild, but you also get to list!' I thought of it as just another great way to get out into nature, and it turns out to have been much more."
