I'm new here myself. Nice to cyber-meet you.
Northern Maine? Well then, you're pretty much a Canadian like Rudi and I!
You're quite a bit farther north than I am here in southwestern Ontario. The organization where I work has a regional office in Sackville, NB, and does a lot of bird monitoring and science work in the Bay of Fundy area. I actually plan to try go get a project of my own started in the Gulf of Maine within the next couple of years.
18 years old - other than being twice your age, it sounds like we have some things in common, including cub-fever. And, at 36, I'm likely still one of the relatively young'uns here myself! You've got a big head-start on a lot of us, so, by the time you're 40, you ought to have 20 or 30 cubs in your collection!
Do you have larger photos of your cub available to view. ...I'll look on the cubfest photo host...
As some of you might have guessed by my profile photo, I'm also an archaeology nut, especially when it comes to finding arrowheads and other artifacts in our local plowed fields (that's an arrowhead photo and illustration in the top right inset of my profile photo).
