I started birding in 1979 in college.
First trip was to Mount Pinos in California.
Seeing the beauty of California condors, and many other birds got me hooked.

Life put birds on hiatus for awhile, but have I returned with a vengence aka renewed energy.
Humbly ready to absorb all there is to offer.

I do the best with the equipment I have;
eventually I hope to improve the quality of my lenses.
