I am an avid birder currently working on my New Castle County Big Year list. I spend most of my down time birding and photographing nature. As I write on Thermal Birding, I hope to share with you my birding adventures, sweet bird and nature photos, and any other random information that comes up in the news. I hope that you check back to the site frequently to see if anything new is flying over! Also, I am always looking for books, gear, and iPhone apps to review. You can contact me by email (timschreckengost AT gmail DOT com), Twitter, or Facebook.
I am a young field ornithologist from western PA, but am currently in northern Delaware, where I am pursuing a Master’s Degree in Wildlife Ecology attempting to validate NEXRAD data and models of bird migration stopover in the northeast US. I have worked throughout the country on several bird research projects and in my free time I enjoy birding, blogging, and photography. I’m interested in migration, radar ornithology, and keeping cats indoors.
