Birding for me began with a deep interest and respect for nature and living things. During my undergrad, I quickly became fascinated with birds. My fascination with birds spurred into an observational and list making hobby, that has dictated many days of my life to the pursuit of seeing birds.

One passion about birding is the satisfaction of just seeing birds where they belong and recording where I saw them. As I travel the United States, my passion for observing birds in their natural habitats has grown into a detailed map that displays the number of species per county I have seen in the U.S. 

A map of my detailed birding adventures is below, followed by a gallary of my favorite pictures I have taken of birds from around the world.
