The Bird Watching




GREETINGS!!! and welcome to the Website of the Bird Watching Geologist. I am presently a college student  majoring in both Ornithology and Wildlife. Here are some photos from my bird watching journeys. Also present are some interesting insects, reptiles, amphibians, and both terrestrial and marine mammals seen while out in the field. All photos were taken by the Bird Watching Geologist unless otherwise noted. Please note that some of the photos may not be of the best picture quality, but they are still important for bird identification and records. If anyone finds any misidentifications please contact me at junipersmc, with details as to why it is not as posted, so names can be updated.

Thanks for visiting my site. Please note that this site will be continue to be under construction. Once "complete", new photos will continue to be added from Northern California.
