My specialty is birds, but I am knowledgeable in many aspects of Ecology and Natural History, in the Cascadia Bioregion, of the Olympic Peninsula, Western Washington and Oregon, and mountain landscapes and ecosystems worldwide. I have a lot of field experience in the mountains of North America, Mexico and South America, and most recently I taught a field methods course for Peruvian university students conducting a biological inventory in the Andes.
