I am now retired faculty in the Biology Department at Eastern Michigan University in Michigan where I studied birds and insects. I have a keen interest in natural history and spend a lot of time in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and boreal forests and bogs.

For years my wife Susan and I have traveled, often in search of interesting natural history sites where we enjoy making new finds (for us). These can be in any taxon because we are just as pleased with seeing a new fern, insect, bird or lichen. Although we also enjoy the chance to find rare and unusual species, which we do on occasion.

As always I am far behind in catching up with species names (and changes) and adding new sightings. Hopefully this will change with retirement, as this is my first semester of teaching freedom, which I miss dearly.
