~ Featured Observations ~

Hello! I will use this journal to keep track of the observations I am most proud of. They may be the first in an area or uncommonly seen there, iNat firsts, species I have a special interest in, or ones that I was able to get very high-quality photographs of. I considered making a list, but those are only for species and not specific observations, so I'll do it here. This makes it easier for me to find them again and keep track of some of my achievements. This will be updated when I make more of them so be sure to check back sometime! Thank you for stopping by.
