Grew up in the Greater Pac NW immersed in nature-- massive salmon runs, caribou herds, crane migrations and an enduring fascination with corvids. Also a heightened obsession emerging later with histrionicus histrionicus - the Harlequin Duck (sometimes sea mouse, sometimes lord/lady), summer job as a wildlife refuge park ranger in college, backpacker & now living in New England and learning about nature here. Occasional theological musings as well from this Episcopal priest.
