About the Author

82 years old (2013), single, retired, always looking for traveling and birding companions.

I take two or three major (2 weeks to a month) overseas birding/nature trips each year. However I ‘bird’ as often as I can, almost every morning in Baja, Mexico. I generally return to visit the United States once each year.

I live in Mexico. My home is in southern Baja Mexico, on the Sea of Cortez, right on the Tropic of Cancer. I am an avid bird-watcher and have been for many years. When at home I bird almost every morning. However to be really truthful, I bird mainly to get bird photographs. It’s just as hard to get a good picture of a common bird as a rare one.

In order that others may enjoy my photographs I:

1. Send out a daily email (BirdNotes) to several hundred intrested birders with photos and information of our local Baja birds. To join click HERE and add either “subscribe” or “sample” to the subject line and your email address to the body.

2. Hardcopy calendars and photobooks of birds can be seen HERE

3. Baja Bird Guides (3 volumes) written for the Kindle Fire or HD (color images)
