Hi Hannah. Lots of questions here but don't worry, if you never ask you won't find out. My responses are my opinion only and others will no doubt have their own ideas.

Hello Hannah, welcome. Great reading your first chirp. Sounds like you have a super location there. You did well. Have you found eBird yet? Through the Cornell Lab.

Just looking on a map. I think the closest I have been to your location is Nashville on vacation.
Hannah Allen
Yes, I have! I use eBird quite often. Im also taking some courses through Cornell’s Bird Academy and local Audubon and DNR led birding events.
