I'm a Houston native who's finally finding time to pay attention to all the growths and critters I've seen all my life. I've recently completed Texas Master Naturalist training through TPWD, and am looking forward to using fewer question marks in my comments as time goes on! I'm pretty solid on common local and coastal/wetland birds, and on forest understory herbs and shrubs, but on many other things I'll be adding IDs based on Googling.

I try to be really careful not to add a detailed ID if I have any doubts that it's a slam-dunk; but there are always mistakes, so feel free to correct me, because I'm happy to learn, and I hate to be responsible for bad data. Fortunately, my success rate seems to be pretty good so far.

In my other life, I'm a scientific programmer (a bioinformaticist), working in Dr. Scott Egan's lab at Rice University: I am rapidly learning more about oak gall wasps than I ever thought possible. ;)
