    Default WELCOME TO THE BIRDINGOZ PARTY

    Welcome everyone to the first annual BirdingOz online party

    Drinks are in the fridge and the chips and dip are on the coffee table in the lounge room....but no double dipping please

    As I stated in the reminder, everyone is asked to bring at least one new thread to the party. It can be an image thread, an update on birding conditions in your area...whatever you like. Just something to keep the party interesting.

    There will be a Weekly Theme starting in a little while and it will be one with a bit of a difference so keep your eyes open for when it comes up.

    Hope you all enjoy yourself and hopefully we can beat the record of 34 users online at the one time. Stick around until at least 9pm or so and hopefully we'll get there
