My main interests are birds and trees, and I work with freshwater fish and occasionally with other freshwater and marine animals. Lots to learn, thanks to all those who take the time to identify and especially to those who leave helpful comments while reviewing.

I am a research technologist in the field of ecotoxicology and toxicogenomics. If you need samples collected for a legit research project (e.g. eDNA, taxonomy), please feel free to contact me. Of course this will depend on factors such as legality, logistics, ethics.

My equipment and apps used for iNaturalist and eBird (just in case anyone cares). Clearly I am not a gear head :)

Samsung S21. Apps used: S21 camera for most landscape photos but not so much for iNat; "HD Camera - Beauty Cam Filters" by iJoysoft for most macro and closeup photos, Open Camera by Mark Harman for lower res photos of ubiquitous plants for example; "GPS Reset COM - GPS Repair" app to keep a solid GPS lock because otherwise far too many photos get tagged with inaccurate coordinates; GPS Essentials for coordinates, compass etc. Hi-Q (free version) for recording audio (no external mic, on the wishlist). Of course iNat app (although I do most uploads at home on a desktop), ebird, Merlin, and NatureCounts apps. And Life360 app so my wife knows where to find me. Preceded by an Samsung S8.

Moto G3 - pretty outdated; I used to take a lot of photos for iNat with it but now I mostly just use it to run eBird tracks. No SIM card, use a GPS locking app and the track looks perfect.

Nikon Coolpix P510. Still works, paid too much for it used on Marketplace. Oh well. Has built in GPS but getting a fix is spotty

Vortex Diamondback 8x40 when I want clarity, and Vortex Crossfire 7x32 when I want something light and don't expect to see too much.

Garmin GPSmaps 64sx and Garmin Colorado 400T.

On the computer (Win7 or 10) - Audacity for editing sound files. Garmin Basecamp to geotag photos from GPX tracks when needed (which I try to avoid as much as possible). I don't edit photos.

Gone but not forgotten: Nikon Coolpix S9700. For a pocket sized camera it took some great photos (for my purposes) at 30x zoom, and the GPS lock was solid. I wore out the zoom! Opening it up to see if I can fix it is on my to-do list.
