Lifelong nature enthusiast and all around naturalist with a particular interest in birds, botany (especially carices and bryophytes), moths, butterflies, odonates, and fishes, but I'm down to learn about anything! I have a special interest in the flora and fauna of the Hudson Bay Lowlands. 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.

Happy to help with identifications where I can.

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

Here is my eBird profile

Favourite groups:
Birds- Anatidae and Charadriiformes
Butterflies- Lycaenidae
Moths- Crambidae
Dragonflies- Sympetrum
Damselflies- Lestes
Fish - Etheostoma and Noturus
Plants - CAREX!!! :D

I love exploring my neighbourhood and finding new things!

One of my favourite ongoing "projects" is recording moths in my yard

Over the course of 2020, I am doing a Nature Big Year with some friends! Much more laid back this year for obvious reasons.

I am participating in the 2020 Ontario Botanists Big Year
