My name is Joshua Glant, and I am a 16-year-old young birder from Seattle, WA. My nickname is Raven, partly because the Common Raven was my sparkbird, but mostly because my online “name” is Raven Lunatic. (In case you’re curious, yes, you can call me Josh as well.) Like the others in this blog, I had the opportunity to attend Session 1 of Camp Colorado 2016, run by the American Birding Association. Perhaps compared to my fellow bloggers, I don’t have as huge of a life list to boast of right now — though ABA 308 is still no number to scoff at — but I definitely possess a passion for birds and birding to match! I look forward to sharing tales of birds, and even some photography too. And yes, I do speak French!
