My day job is teaching engineering mechanics at UWM

I started taking pictures after I noticed some birds as I walked though Estabrook Park for exercise.

I use a not-very-fancy and seven-year-old Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR 16-megapixel digital camera with a nice 42x (24-1000mm) manually-operated optical zoom, automatic focus, and image stabilization.

If you’d rather just see all the pictures, please go to my Flickr page.

I usually use the excellent allaboutbirds.org website by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to help me identified what I’ve seen. I even made a donation, so it’s all on the up-and-up.

For wildflowers, the Wildflowers of Lake Park booklet by Lake Park Friends is an excellent resource.

For all the other stuff, I just ask Dr. Google. The ability to search for similar images is handy sometimes.
