Originally hailing from Buffalo, New York and going to school at Humboldt State in California, Ben has a decade’s worth of avian field work and recreational birding under his belt on both coasts. He brings his experienced warbler identification and in depth knowledge of Southern Texas, Arizona, and California specialties to the team. After moving to the Vegas region in 2014, he quickly became recognized as a top local birder. He is a voting member of the Nevada Bird Records Committee and active with the Red Rock Audubon Society. Ben will provide both detail and discussion on the denizens of the Mojave Desert, all while probably getting a few laughs out of you!
