Prairie Birder’s 5th Anniversary!

My blog turned five years old yesterday! It’s hard to believe I’ve been writing here for such a long time.

I started Prairie Birder when my family was in the Caribbean for an extended visit, and since then it’s been such a handy platform to share my photos, stories, and connect with other birders across the world. I’ve had some wonderful opportunities through blogging and I’d like to thank all of my readers for their support and encouragement. I’d also like to thank my mom for all her support, and inspiration, especially for getting me started with the blog.

For any newer readers, there are lots of posts in the archives — more than 650 posts from my home in Alberta, and also from my travels to the Caribbean, New York, Washington, DC, Ontario, France, and Germany.

I can’t wait to share my future adventures, so here’s to the next five years!

  2. Congratulations on a job creating and sticking with the blog. Look forward to reading many more stories and photos in the future!

  3. Congratulations on this anniversary. Thanks for the links to past posts. Never enough time for all the things I want to do it seems. Love the tree in the image.

  4. Congratulations, Prairie Birder! I have been enjoying your blog since I first heard you on Ray Brown’s program when you were down in the Caribbean. Keep up the good work!

  5. Cheers, Prairie Birder, here’s to the next 5. But honestly, once you’re over 40, 5 years are not “such a long time”. Thanks for still being one of the most refreshing bird bloggers around.

  6. Congratulations Charlotte – your blog is always interesting and your photos are terrific, here’s to another many more than five years for sure… best wishes.

  7. Congratz!! Fantastic blog and a wonderful achievement! Oh,… and if you have any idea on how to get other young women interested in birding (maybe even writing on that topic for ABA), let us know!

  8. Five years and you are not only still worth reading, but increasingly so. That’s a huge achievement.

    You know how you impacted my son (and me) through your blog and other activities – I’m sure you’ve also made a big, positive difference to many others you may not know about.

    Thank you.
