HI Kareen, we are working on updating the FAQs at the moment so there will be a little more guidance up soon. Currently the only way to thank other users for their comments is by leaving a comment yourself. You can also use the general chat at the bottom of the page to get to know other users, & there is a support chat if you need advice. Again, welcome aboard - I look forward to seeing more from you!

Thanks for all your wonderful comments! I am brand new at this and cannot figure out how to individually respond to comments. And I can't find any instructions on how to best utilize this wonderful site!
Can somebody help me?

Thanks so much, Kareen

I'm fortunate to be able to see this species almost every day in the spring and summer months. In fact, I saw one on the way home today. Lovely birds!
