Chris's Diary

I'm a birder, hiker, and climber who also happens to be an ecologist...or is that the other way around?  I get out in nature a lot, and enjoy the challenge posed by identifying what I see.  As well as ornithology, I've dabbled in botany, entymology (well, lepidoptery technically), herpetology, and mycology.  I have worked for Birds Australia, and often get asked to speak in public about birds or present field identification workshops.  I also occasionally get my photos published in magazines or books, though I still consider myself a birder first and photographer second.  I live in the Brisbane area for now but tend to move around a bit.

Thanks Tom! It's been great seeing your reports from the site and knowing the birds are using it regularly.
