Nate, Steve, and Tim are avid birders currently working on their year lists. They spend most of their down time birding and photographing nature. As they write on Thermal Birding, they hope to share with you their birding adventures, sweet bird and nature photos, and any other random information they come up with or are researching at that time. They hope that you check back to the site frequently to see if anything new is flying over! Also, they are always looking for books, gear, and iPhone apps to review. You can contact them by email (timschreckengost AT gmail DOT com), Twitter, or Facebook.
I am a young field ornithologist from western PA, but am currently in southern Delaware. I am pursuing a Master’s Degree in Wildlife Ecology studying the validation of 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.
