Welcome to the mon@rch nature blog and I hope you join us in some of our nature adventures through the Allegany State Park area!
I am a naturalist, field biologist and nature photographer from the Western New York area. I have started exploring nature writing through this blog and it truly has been fun sharing my numerous adventures with everyone. Thanks to the many other authors that help me with my post and they will be sharing some of their nature explorations.
I have always had a latent interest in birds and photography and have been lucky enough to find time to explore these interests over the last few years. I am very thankful to the Cattaraugus County Bird Club for getting me started, sharing their wealth of knowledge and for their wonderful programs. And many thanks to Tom for letting me share some of my adventures and photos on the Monarch Nature Blog.
Thank you for taking the time visiting and commenting on this blog.
Thank you…wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving too…

I know what I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving – TOM’S BACK!!
As President of the TLBFC, may I say, “We love you and we missed you!” Welcome home!
Can’t wait to see pics of the WWCB.

Happy Leftovers Weekend, my friend. (I must say, turkeys are much handsomer when they are stuffed and just out of the oven… Shhhh….. don’t tell anyone I said that.)

What a pretty face :o) Snort!
Happy Thanksgiving to you, Tom.

Happy Thanksgiving Mon@rch. Now that is one ugly head, and they say that Vulture heads are ugly. I don’t think they have looked good at the turkey head. That thing needs ear muffs to cover those ugly ears.

Happy Thanksgiving Tom-hope you and yours have a wonderful one-wish all the Young Naturalists one too!

Hope you had a good turkey day! I’ve been wondering about you. I assume all is well, you’re just busy. Take care, regardless. Know that your lovely blog posts have been missed. 🙂

Incredibly ugly bird. Like a regular bird morphing into a vulture. But something about the eye looks almost intelligent.
