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.

I don’t know how you get so many great photos!! Look at that sharp beak, no wonder he can tear it apart like that.

One of the best – Osprey having a meal. Great, Tom!

Great shot. Two things stick in my mind about Osprey. One , they see to have a voracious appetite. And two (and I’ve said this to birders who give me a strange look), Osprey seem to be born with a dumb look on their face. Maybe its just me!
