Welcome Iamara! I recently got into birdwatching and I loved reading your list of birds. :D I'm also a big D&D 5e fan - there are a lot of us here! I look forward to getting to you know you. :pleased-1:

Hi and welcome, I love how amazing all of your hobbies sound. We love putting out feeders for our birds, and we're still waiting to see the hummingbirds.

Welcome Iamara!

I am also an Egwene fan! Though, her taste in men does leave something to be desired...

I love your list of birds (it's got me thinking about my favourite feathered friends on other continents too now!)

My favourite is the Eurasian Magpie - there's a pair nesting in our garden at the moment (I'm fairly sure they're the same pair that were sat on the roof when we first saw the house last year & absolutely did not sway the decision to buy it :shifty2:) and I'm really looking forward to seeing some wobbly babies trying to fly :laugh:

There's a lot of little house sparrows living in the hedges too and we get regular visits from starlings, blackbirds and some wood pigeons that are so big I thought one was a duck without my glasses on! Seen what I think is probably a Red Kite a few times too but by the time I've grabbed my binoculars, it's usually zoomed away.

No robins or blue tits here yet but I'm hoping once they spot the bird table that they might stop by as they're two of my favourites as well :)

Welcome to the community, Iamara! I love your name, and honestly, from this thread alone, you are just... really cool. :laugh: I hope to see you around more - and please let us know about any questions you may have in the meantime.

Thank you Arinna Sedai, Arella Sedai, and Roheryn Sedai for your warm welcomes! I do R&D in physics, with a particular focus on optics and optical phenomena.

I first got into meteorology when I was four years old and got caught in a hailstorm in New Jersey. After a bunch of months fearing thunder, I picked up a book on weather and fell in love with it. Nowadays, I take classes in meteorology and climate whenever I can, and I'm a Storm Spotter for the US National Weather Service!
Ahhhhh omg hi we have similar interests and also Egwene is my favorite. But I'm also a physics researcher! Space plasma physics though, not optics. Any specific optical phenomena?

I'm also sort of obsessed with meteorology, I know some atmospheric physics because of my background (I used to do Mars upper atmosphere physics -- not weather though) but not on the level of meteorology, which I really wish I'd gotten a chance to take a class or two in. I live in the Arctic and sometimes my institute has seminars on stuff like arctic amplification of climate change, or the very cool kinds of clouds we can get up here like noctilucent clouds or polar stratospheric clouds, and I just love it. Do you have a favorite type of storm? I have a weird obsession with following hurricanes specifically, they're so destructive but they really fascinate me.
