Young birder and naturalist in southern Ontario.

I am always learning, so take my IDs with a grain of salt. I recommend not agreeing with my identifications without learning how to identify the organism yourself; you get to learn something and it improves the quality of iNaturalist's observations! If you are trying to show appreciation for identifications, leaving a comment is more effective. :)

iNaturalist has been very helpful to me for learning about insects and other organisms. However, put my bird observations on eBird instead.

If an organism is identifiable to species from photos, but my photos aren't good enough or don't have the right angle for it, please let me know! I will try to improve on it the next time I find one. Let me know also if cropping photos already there will help with ID.

My main interest will probably always be birds, but my use of iNaturalist has resulted in a couple other distinct insterests that I have created projects for:
Toxomerus hoverflies - https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/neotropical-toxomerus
Slugs of Ontario - https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/slugs-of-ontario

I post my favourite photos on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/7_ate_9/
