Hello! I’m so happy that you’ve stumbled into my little corner of the Internet, and I hope you’ll enjoy your stay. My name is Valerie and you can probably see me over in the sidebar – nice to meet you! As you can perhaps guess from my blog name, I’m an unabashed bird nerd. I love to go birdwatching and spend hours alone in the woods with my camera and binoculars. As an introvert with a wonderful husband, 4 kids, a black lab, and an active social life, I crave that time alone every once in a while, and I’m grateful that the birds let me keep them company.
