As a generalist, my passion for Nature makes nothing uninteresting! A birder my whole life, wetland habitats now draw me and, thanks to iNat, smaller beings I had overlooked as well as non-faunal taxa.

Paleontology, my first career, totally fascinates & guides me. It shows how biologic & geologic dynamics create evolving biodiversities - unique in time/space.

I am thankful to the 1) observers/identifiers, 2) experts/amateurs, and 3) the folks behind the scenes at iNaturalist. I think it’s ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT to have this & similar forums while the radical & rapid changes we create cause such huge losses of biodiversity. Several of my observations can no longer be replicated, and too many are state listed.

I am an avid learner so, please, feel free to help any of my errant (or not) observations & identifications - works in progress. Some, like birds, are old friends & some, like Derbids & freshwater macro invertebrates, are becoming familiars.

Also, I’m drawn to stories of the Natural World so you’ll see some in my observations . . . mating, predation, habitat preferences, seasonal activities, human influence . . .

Happing Exploring, Everyone!
