Hey Everyone

Hey everyone my name is Matt from the east coast of America. My girlfriend and I will be sharing this username to help further our knowledge of birds. My girlfriend is a brilliantly talented artist, writer, and actor, and I am a distance runner, stand up comedian, model and actor.

We love traveling- we have been all over the world, including swimming in the Amazon and Ganges for my girlfriend, and in 2016 we were lucky enough to drive across America 4 different times on 4 different routes in just 8 months. That trip not only changed our lives, and how we view the world, but also afforded us the opportunity to see countless birds we otherwise would not have seen (including a painted bunting in Big Spring, Texas, and a greater roadrunner in Deming, New Mexico, which as East Coasters, we were beyond thrilled to see).

We have both been ardent animal lovers since birth, and although we have always loved birds, we still have a lot to learn about them so we welcome any helpful information. We look forward to talking with all of you, and we thank you very much for having us.

Hello! I’m Marci, Matt’s girlfriend. Sorry I haven’t been able to say hello yet!

I’m excited to interact with everyone on here, and to learn more about birds and birding (which is something Matt got me into).

Hope everyone is well!
