Birding by Boat on the Rio Negro
John started birdwatching in his native England as a teenager. His 35 years in the oil industry allowed him to travel extensively on business, using his free time to bird. His world list is approaching 8,000 species!

Some of his contributions have included sitting on the DFO Board member, CFO trip leader, membership in the Colorado Rare Bird Committee, and acting as a regional coordinator for the new Colorado Breeding Bird Atlas.
