Hi there and welcome to my bird blog. I’m using this space to write about the natural world that surrounds me every day and to share some of the actual science that underlies how we learn about that world. In general, the links that I provide in each entry will be completely accessible to anyone, so you should all be able to see the original research that informs some of the things that I write.
Most of my animal observations on here will come from my musings as I walk through Charlotte on the way to work or while jogging or biking places. I do, in fact, go out and do “real” birding, but there’s a lot to be seen in the world just by paying attention as you go about doing other things. So open your eyes (and more importantly, your ears) and experience the natural world!
