I'm into pretty much everything, though I am most interested in birds, fish, herps, moths, butterflies, dragonflies, and damselflies. I dabble in botany from time to time (more and more often it seems nowadays!) Trying to wrap my head around mycology and bryology. 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. 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)

Here is my eBird profile

Over the course of 2019, I am doing a Nature Big Year with some friends!

I have a personal goal of seeing 1000 plant species in Ontario during 2019. Let's see where we end up!
