I am originally from Vermont and later Ohio. I currently live in Lusaka, Zambia with my husband Jonathan and three kids. My love of birds began by watching birds with my grandmother at her birdfeeder. She really enjoyed them. In Ohio, I always had bird feeders and enjoyed birding in my backyard. Things got exciting when I moved to Lusaka. There are so many different birds here and they were all new and fascinating. I wanted to find out more about them. And so a bird nerd was born.
