My first love was birds, of course (hence the username), but over the past few years I have been working to boost my knowledge on a wider variety of biodiversity. I am a graduate of the ERS (environment program) from the University of Waterloo, and I'm fortunate enough to get to spend some of my time in Presqu'ile Provincial Park.

In 2022 I attempted a challenge proposed by Will van Hemessen on the Ontario Botanists’ project in 2021. The challenge was to observe 1000 plant species in a set 50-kilometre radius! I was featured in a CBC article speaking about this challenge:, and a Beyond the Bulletin podcast episode: I achieved my goal after a long year of intense botanizing. Check out my observations within the radius at this link:
