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.
Almost there! Soon enough they will be flying around! That moment must feel like pure freedom.

Amazes me that they can fit so many feathery butts in nests.

So cute…It\’s amazing how calm baby birds remain when their parents are away.

They do look ready to go! I think our yard robins are with their second family of the season now.

Isn’t it amazing that they all seem to look cross? Guess it’s the crowded space and desire to fly. Sort of like sullen teenagers.

This is such a wonderful and hopeful time of the year!

They look happy–maybe they know they are getting ready to leave the nest.
