Introduction An IT professional, I am a naturalist, who through my work of building a backyard habitat for birds and butterflies have taken up observing birds, insects, reptiles and plants. In addition to my own Horticultural work, I do volunteer work with a number of organizations including the NYC Audubon Society, the American Littoral Society NE Chapter and the National Park Service, Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, which has helped my growth as a naturalist.
