Birding Babylon Blog
Many birders take up their interest in birds early in life. In my case I was about 8 when I started observing the birds on the farm I called home. This was in the Murray Mallee district of South Australia.
Jonathan started dedicated birding at the age of 12. In 2004 he was a 38-year-old Connecticut National Guard sergeant who was posted to Camp Anaconda about 40 miles north of Baghdad in Iraq. During the time he was stationed there he began observing the birds and other wildlife around him. Since he was working in intelligence no-one seemed concerned that he was often seen peering through his binoculars. He then recorded his observations in his blog. This has generated world-wide interest and gives one a completely different view of life there in the midst of a troubled country.
