Idaho Birding Blog to become "Birding is Fun!"

It's with mixed emotions that I announce that the Idaho Birding Blog is in on the move. This last week I accepted a job that will take my family to the east coast. It will be a job that will require me to travel weekly the area from Baltimore to Atlanta. Very much a family-man, I'm not thrilled to be a road-warrior, yet we look forward to the adventure for the family and the opportunity to get back off poverty's door step. I'm also excited to see lots of new birds!

This move brings necessary changes to the Idaho Birding Blog. I have un-tied the blog from geographic limitations, so I never have to change it again. The new blog name is "Birding is Fun!"

For concerned Idaho Birders, the November edition of the Idaho Camera Birding Photo Competition will still go forward with no changes.  I will continue to accept Idaho Birder Profiles from any of you still working on them. Although I will be mostly out of town until we move in mid-November, I will still be hosting the Avimor Big Sit! on Saturday Oct 9th from 6am-noon.  You are all invited!

It has been fun to be "home" in Idaho for the last few years. I've made some great birding friends and found some fantastic places in Idaho to go birding! The Idaho Birding Blog has been a blast for me and I hope you have enjoyed it too. I'll still be passionately birding and blogging and I hope many of you will continue to follow my adventures.

Happy Birding!

  1. Best of luck to you and your family on the move and new location!! Talk about a whole new world of birds on the east coast!

    You're blog is wonderful whatever the name :)

  2. Good luck in your new venture Bob, I am sure it will work out, especially if you keep up the birding and the blogging. I like the new title too - very true.

  3. Let me know if you'd like someone to go birding with in the Atlanta area.

  4. Thanks for the comments guys! This should be a fun adventure.

  5. How exciting for you in making such a big move! We'll miss you in ID, but just imagine how much fun it will be to explore all that new bird territory!
