Biography:

I am a naturalist and field biologist with particular knowledge of birds and vascular plants in my home area of central Montana. I am a novice with insects (though their ecological importance is obvious). I do have a rudimentary familiarity with some of the more common butterflies of my area, and recently I have been learning more about Orthoptera and Odonata. For several years I have been heavily involved in long-term volunteer bird surveys and native plant restoration on a local stream restoration site. This place has become the focus for many of my naturalist endeavors.
