    I got into birding this spring as a hobby, thinking to myself “it’s free, you just need to use your eyes and ears”, withing a month I bought a $350 pair of binoculars. I’ve managed to fight off the temptation of a decent camera so far, thankfully. I found a great park at the tail end of spring migration about 10 minutes from my apartment, and the dawn chorus was almost sensory overload, the was so many different species singing and calling. I’m looking forward to what new birds I’ll see during this fall migration and especially next spring migration.

    It’s pretty great, there’s also Cornell’s companion citizen science app called eBird that you can use to count birds around you which is useful to ornithologists to track bird population density and migration patterns!

    I waited months for Google to release a firmware patch to unlock Bluetooth. Eventually, I got tired of 4 mostly bricked (could still use them wired) controllers laying around and tossed 3 of them. I wish I would have kept them all now, Stadia controllers are some of the best, I may have to pick up another one online.
