Evolutionary biologist by training, educator by passion. Interested in almost everything, but especially reptiles (non-avian and avian). Willing to contort body to get camera closer for a better photo. He/they

The majority of my recent observations occurred on the ancestral and ongoing homelands and waters of the Coastal Salish peoples, particularly the spuyaləpabš (Puyallup), bəqəlšuł (Muckleshoot), dxʷdəwʔabš (Duwamish), and Nisqually peoples.

I deeply appreciate those experts (academic, professional, or hobbyist) who actively identify records on iNaturalist, including my own. I have learned so much from your generosity, and continue to learn. Thank you!

Most of my identifications to iNaturalist records are categorizing untagged/unclassified observations to high taxonomic levels. I hope that these records will see some attention from experts rather than disappearing into the very large "unknown taxon" haystack. See Identification Etiquette on iNaturalist:
