Dawn Fine, the goddess of the birding blog world, was kind of enough to spotlight Birding is Fun! over at BirdingBlogs.com today! Thanks Dawn! Check out her personal blog here!

This new role comes with a huge advantage to my family as I won't have to be on the road away from them. I will get to enjoy the familial bonds every night and weekend, and thus be home for all the kids' school and extracurricular events. Both Jessica and I have loads of extended family along Utah's Wasatch Front and it is only a five hour drive to see our parents and family in the Boise area.
So, while I am disappointed that I will be missing the spring migration of eastern warblers, I am excited to get to know Utah's birds, birding locations, and birders.
By the way, there is a great new multi-author blog called Utah Birders that is definitely worth checking out. You can also follow them on Twitter @UtahBirders.
If you are not already following Melissa Mayntz's Backyard Birds Utah, you should be! She is an exceptionally talented writer I enjoy reading and is the power behind all things birding and wild birds at About.com. She can be followed on Twitter to @AboutBirdies.
Because of the holidays and our big family move, birding and bird blogging may be taking a backseat for a couple weeks. I have some great Birder Profiles scheduled to post each Thursday as well as a rerun of seven posts discussing the birds and their symbolisms as mentioned in the Christmas classic song "Twelve Days of Christmas", so stay tuned!
