I was a little nervous at first because I was in a pretty rough relationship for almost two years. My ex is someone I've known forever and we had dated on and off again before getting serious and it was really just hell. So, I don't have a lot of experience.Anyway, my…See More

Matthew - There are a lot of great birding books out there, but my personal favorite is the Stokes Field Guide to Birds by Donald and Lillian Stokes. Depending on what part of the country you are from, there are different region versions of this book to choose from. I like this book because it is very user friendly and only uses photos of the actual birds, no drawings. The other piece of equipment you will need is a good set of binoculars. I own the Nikon Trailblazer which is not the highest end but works very well for the price.
