Welcome to my website! I have posted some stories and photos from my birding trips in the US and abroad. Most of these trips were taken exclusively to look for birds and animals (mostly birds), and many of these trips were solo expeditions, taken with varying expectations and a healthy sense of humor.
While I'm travelling, I tend to take pictures of just about every wild bird or animal I see, however common. All birds that are pictured on the page are noted in boldface. All the pictures on this site are of wild birds and animals, except where noted. The Tufted Puffins below, for instance, were photographed at the Port Defiance Zoo in Tacoma, WA, but I thought this photo was just too cute to pass over!
My first major birding trip was to New Zealand in December 1994...
A great resource for birding in Washington State and British Columbia.
