I like birds, and that's why I watch them. I do not collect points for rarities (in Finnish: en ole bongari, olen dude) or anything like that.
I mostly watch birds on my yard or anywhere I happen to be for some reason, but occasionally I visit Suomenoja/Finnoo or Otaniemi/Laajalahti, which are quite nice places for watching birds.
Actually, I mostly just accompany my wife Liisa who knows birds much better than I do.
One of my long-term hobby projects is to collect a document (in Finnish) which explains the origins of the scientific names of birds (probably restricting myself to birds seen in Finland). Not much progress, though.
But I have collected a small list of links to good sites about birds.
