Fledging birders

A NooJOYzee birder by the name of Dave Magpiong wants to hear from you! He recently initiated a survey of six questions as part of his Fledging Birders site.

The site's tagline is "Bringing the joy of birding to children of all ages!" Dave describes his efforts this way:
Fledging Birders is the practice of creatively exposing people to the art of birdwatching.

You should help prospective birders learn about birds on their own terms. It is important not to force it upon them. Instead, give them opportunities to have positive experience with birds. It's also very effective to make connections between their own lives and the world of birds. When they're ready to fly with it, they will!
Please take a minute to respond to Dave's survey.
1) How old were you when you were first introduced to birding?

2) Who "recruited" you into birding? (relation to you but feel free to include name also)

3) Where were you living when you started birding?

4) What is it about birds or birding that hooked you?

5) Do you have any children in your life? (including nieces/nephews, grandchildren, students, scouting troop, etc.)

6) If yes to number 5, what are their ages?

You can answer the questions online or via e-mail. Thank you!
