It started with the birds, and soon expanded to all life forms. Other than birds, my primary interests are odonates (dragonflies and damselflies), butterflies, moths, plants, fish, and fungi, though I am down to learn about anything in the natural world! I love Carex and bryophytes! I am not a professional by any means, just a high school student who enjoys spending my free time, and then some, outside (or peering down a microscope). I find enjoyment in exploring my local area and am always amazed by the diversity of life that can be found right at your doorstep. That being said, I enjoy exploring new areas as well! I aim to one day become a 100% naturalist.

With every mistake I make, I learn a little more!

Happy to help out with identifications where I can!

I record my adventures on my blog (Birds, Bugs, and Botany)
