A little Background
I have been a wildlife biologist for 40 years, an Interpretive Park Ranger for the National Park Service for 2 field seasons, and I am a student of history, especially in the Western states and my relatives involved in the Revolutionary and Civil War.
I am interested in American History especially the history of my relatives that took part in the Revolutionary War and the War of Northern Aggression. My Grandfather moved west with the railroad in the late part of the 1800’s to Idaho from North Carolina. My great Grandfather was a member of the Confederate Army and near the end of the War was a POW in several locations in the North. My father is a veteran of World War II serving as a mechanic for bombers and two of my uncles were also in the U S Army Air Corps during that War and one uncle was a Navy medic in the South Pacific action of the War. I hope to offer a few blogs about birds and other wildlife on a regular basis.
