I can answer questions about bird watching, backyard feeding, bird behaviour, migration, feather molt, disease, etc. I also keep and race racing pigeons. I will be unable to answer specific questions about pet birds.
Amateur ornithologist since 1985. Very active bird researcher, watcher and feeder. I hold federal and provincial permits (since 1994) that allow me to capture, band (ring), and study wild birds prior to release back into the wild. I teach a bird banding course twice annually and have given numerous talks to the public on bird banding and owls.
