Ken has been leading field naturalist outings, or guiding personal birding trips since 2000, and is one of Ontario’s leading birders. His birding expeditions have taken him all over Canada and the USA, as well as trips to Central America and Europe.
An all around naturalist at heart, Ken is knowledgeable in just about every taxa encountered in Ontario. Ken completed his Master’s in 2013, where he studied ‘reverse migration in the Pelee region’ and now works as a biologist for Natural Resource Solutions Inc., a consulting firm in Waterloo, ON, where he’s had the good fortune of steadily broadening his technical field expertise.
Since 2006, Ken has birded professionally, while since 2011, has been a voting member of the Ontario Bird Records Committee, a sub-committee of the Ontario Field Ornithologists, and recently (2014-2017) served on the Board of Directors for the Ontario Field Ornithologists. Ken is the regional eBird reviewer for Waterloo Region, Perth, Bruce, and Huron Counties, and is also the noteworthy bird records compiler for Waterloo Region Nature.
Ken, his partner, Lillian, and his family are keenly involved in the outdoors and have been since he was a kid. Ken and Lillian reside in Kitchener-Waterloo.
