I have been using eBird since 2006 and have been a Sacramento County reviewer since 2007. This seemed like a good time to start up with iNaturalist, so I'm just learning the ropes and adding a few species for the City Nature Challenge, Sacramento. I love many aspects of nature and biogeography, but my main focus has been birds, with lesser knowledge but interest in herps, odes, leps, and mammals. I'm also interested in many plant communities and geographies, with a special fondness for deserts and desert mountains. I've been doing bird surveys for over 20 years at the Cosumnes River Preserve, and for work, I'm a Natural Resource Specialist at the Bufferlands surrounding the Sacramento Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant ( with a focus on habitat restoration and wildlife monitoring. So many great places to visit, once we start doing that again.
