I am a bird nerd to the max. I also basically love all other kinds of nature. I was living in Costa Rica when I first signed up on iNaturalist, but I've also lived all over the U.S.: Houston, TX, San Diego, CA, Cape May County, NJ, San Francisco and Oakland, CA, and now Alameda, CA.
Working in parks is a roller coaster and I am once again unemployed. Most recently I worked for the Alameda Recreation and Park Department. I used to work at the Oakland Zoo, Angel Island and before that Alcatraz Island. I ran a blog about the bird life on Alcatraz with one of my coworkers. The blog is still active, though now it's more focused on the bird life I encounter in many different places. You can find it at www.maganrord.com. All of the Alcatraz related stuff is still in the archives.
My dream is to live in a cave. Or possibly a tree house.
