About Me

Sandia Park, New Mexico, United States
I have been birding for 41 years. My favorite clients are those who are interested in birds, watching them and even learning about their behavior, not just checking birds off a life list. I enjoy people and want to have fun while birding. As a bird watcher since 1972, I have acquired a broad knowledge of birds, birdsong, habitat and behavior. One of the things I enjoy most about taking people out birding is teaching my clients how to identify birds and how to recall their song. We were in Asheville, NC for 5 years, and Bisbee, AZ 10 years before that. Currently we are house hunting in New Mexico.

The Holidays Upon Us

The Holidays Are Upon Us

I have been busy the past two months participating in various birding events. Last week, I helped teach a Sparrow ID Workshop at the Valle de Oro Wildife Refuge, teaching the volunteers and employees there how to properly identify those Sparrows!

I also took a very large group out from the Sierra Club to the Bosque del Apaceh where I showed them Cranes, Eagles, Water Fowl, Hawks and many more. It was great continuing to work with kids. 
Thanks to Raymond Van Buskirk for this great photo of a N. Saw Whet Owl

In November, I lead and co lead bird and owl tours at the Bosque del Apache Festival of the Cranes. We had large groups for owling and were able to give many folks good looks at the owls. Raymond and I were very pleasantly surprised to find this second record Northern Saw Whet Owl at BdA eating a mouse!

Coming up, Christmas Crane Cruise at the Casa de San Pedro...
Here are the details
