The Jersey Birder

It took me a while for me to work up the nerve to identify myself publicly as a birder, let alone declare myself “The Jersey Birder.” Even there, I wondered if it would be more appropriate to use the indefinite article and go with “a Jersey birder.”

But go big or go back to the birdhouse, I say. In Spring 2021, as the warblers and other migrants began working their way up the Atlantic flyway, I launched this site.

I’ve been a blogger for many years, on the job in my old role as an editor and online director at a newspaper in California, and on my own as a baseball blogger. I still post to the ballcaps.blog, but more of my energy these days is spent here and out in the woods with my binoculars and camera.

I live and work in Mercer County, New Jersey, home to the state capitol at Trenton and Princeton University, where I’m on the communications staff.

The views here are strictly my own, and I’m reasonably certain no one else would want or claim them. But I do hope you may find some utility or entertainment in them.
