Hello all!

My name is Chris Duke, and I finally got around to subscribing to 
Tweeters, after "eavesdropping" on the tweeters listings on the net for 
a year or so.  To give a bit of info about myself, I am an 18 year old 
male, I've been birding since I was 5, and I have a life list of 403, 
having only left the country for one week (Mexico).  I have met several 
of you, either on a boat in the Pacific, birding by myself, or with my 
friend Allan Grenon.  I look forward to getting to know the rest of you 
as well, you seem like a pretty cool bunch.  

In one short week, I will be moving up to Western Washington University 
in Bellingham, and I am curious as to whether or not there are any 
tweets out there with me, and also looking for good birding in the 
area.  Any ideas sre more than welcome.  

Also, a quick bit of input on the Band-Tailed Pigeon querey.  I have 
noticed far more Band-Tails this year than I think I ever have.  The 
greenbelt behind my neighborhood has been alive with the birds, and I 
continue to see small flocks (5-10) stream overhead daily.  I live in 
Renton, near Fairwood.  Perhaps the birds simply changed migration 
routes slightly this year.

Well, that's it for now.  I'm heading to Nisqually tomorrow, I'll let 
you know how I do.  Good birding!
