I'm an enthusiastic amateur naturalist living in north-central Illinois. I have a broad range of interests. I'm an avid birder, but increasingly focused on invertebrates. I survey for odonates, bumblebees, bats and river mussels. I am easily distracted by mammals, butterflies, moths, snakes and prairie plants or wildflowers.
I rely on a large collection of field guides and books (yes, real books!) for identifications. I've found most apps to be unreliable, although iNaturalist can be very helpful.

My IDs are sometimes a little wacky. Don't hesitate to question me or correct me. I hope the learning curve goes on forever.
