Hey iNaturalists!

I am a birder and naturalist living in Loveland, Colorado. I grew up in La Verne, California, lived in the Phoenix, Arizona area for three years, and moved to Colorado in 2017. My current nature goal is to attempt to document the biodiversity of my home county, Larimer, Colorado. I share all of my non-bird observations with iNaturalist.org and all my bird observations with eBird.org. Contributing to citizen science is extremely rewarding to me. Currently, I'm working on my Bachelors Degree in Secondary Biology Education online through Western Governors University and working in the grocery industry. I look forward to teaching high school biology; although it will be challenging, I'm excited to invest in the next generation! Birding-wise, I enjoy scanning through large flocks, thoroughly covering birding locations, and studying topics such as advanced ID and hybridization. Some of my favorite bird groups are waterfowl, gulls, shorebirds, and owls. North American birds and mammals are my strongest area of knowledge but I also have some experience birding in Costa Rica and Argentina and book knowledge of many Latin American and Australian birds.
