Here is just a small sample of the activities I might be found doing in my down time or for research.

Bird Watching

Birding has been my recent craze. Its calming, easy and fun. Whether I am out with friends or going solo, birding has been a rewarding hobby throughout the last year. Here are a couple of shots I have acquired of birds!

I spotted what I think is a juvenile red-tailed hawk in Southern Ontario in July 2019.

Saw this little buddy passing through Michigan in April of 2019. A Hermit Thrush that stayed around in the area for a couple of hours and also hung out with some local robins!

RockHounding (Arizona)

Hiking itself is a great leisure activity for myself. Add hunting for rocks and I am happy as a clam!

Fermentation Creation

I am also passionate about fermenting foods! I learned most of what I know by reading material authored by Sandor Elix Katz. Peep my creations below!
