I'm a biologist from Southern California. I like organisms. I especially like looking for rare birds, Calochortus lilies, monkeyflowers, fungi, herps, galls, lady beetles, interesting weeds, etc.

Feel free to tag me for California bird/herp/vascular plant IDs (or anything else, but no promises) and/or ask ID questions (that I may not know the answers to, but I'll do what I can to point you towards other resources/users).

My main areas of ID expertise are birds, plants, and herps (of California). Most of my field work has involved bird surveys and botanical surveys. I've also worked on projects involving insects, freshwater fish, reptiles, amphibians, fungi, terrestrial mammals, and marine mammals. I also spent about 6 years working in avian and botanical specimen collections (www.wfvz.org and the UCSC natural history museum: https://norriscenter.ucsc.edu/collections/index.html). I've gone from field jobs to non-profit work to private consulting work and then back to non-profit work, and I currently work for the California Native Plant Society as the rare plant scientific coordinator (https://www.cnps.org/rare-plants).

Note: Some of my photographs include plucked/pulled/salvaged/netted/dead organisms (usually plants or birds, rarely other stuff) as some of my work involved capturing and marking birds as well as collecting plant/fungal voucher specimens. In most cases, these dead organisms are deposited in museums/herbaria for research purposes
