Hi, everyone! I'm a birder, naturalist, and classicist-turned-activist working to make my corner of the universe a little extra awesome. If you've ever wondered what people do with a Latin degree, it's this.

Being very Portuguese, I've always loved the outdoors and gardening. I became especially interested in our avian friends after years of reading poetry and realizing I had no idea what Vergil meant when he talked about the "call of the lark." Conveniently, my husband @fm5050 is a really good birder, so now I know all the birds!

I also like brightly-colored butterflies and flowers, mushrooms, and basically anything that gives me an excuse to spend all of my life outside, especially on camping trips. Check out photos from some of my adventures here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/139578926@N03/albums
