Favorite Bird: "Insect eater, people-friendly, tough, double clutcher, I’m definitely coming back in the next life as an Eastern Phoebe. We sometimes see this handsome flycatcher during our Christmas Bird Count here in northwest Connecticut perched over whatever open water is available looking for a snack."

Formerly long time Manager of the Buttercup Farm and Rheinstrom Hill Sanctuaries in New York and the E.W. Miles Wildlife Sanctuary in Connecticut, Mike now works as the Land Manager for Sharon Audubon Center.
