I'm Dustin. I now live in Denver, but originally from San Diego. I have been a nature enthusiast my entire life. This led me to traveling, which led me to photography, and now, which led me here. I can longer hide behind my "I'm not birder, I'm a wildlife photographer" charade. I have never used a pair of binnoculars, but I have a life list of 614 bird species. Not to mention at least a dozen bird books. So I am a birder "newbie-ish", and excited to join your group. Look forward to exchanging ideas, and getting some first hand advise about up-coming trips I have planned.
