An “accidental” birder, Evan became interested in feathered animals while studying Herpetology in college. Realizing that birds were an even better excuse to get outside, he got hooked on Ornithology. He loves the riddles and mental exercises that birding puts the human mind through, but migration has always been one of his favorite aspects of the bird world. He has worked as a bird bander and educator at Manomet Bird Observatory since 2008. Over these 9 years he has enjoyed studying and teaching the marvels of migration to children, students and adults. Through education, he hopes to change minds and foster greater respect for the natural world that surrounds us all.
After visiting the Jerusalem Bird Observatory as part of an exchange in September 2017, Evan joined the team for the first time last year and he has been anxiously awaiting another epic, Bamba-fueled birding adventure. He is looking forward to tasting victory (and he’s pretty sure it tastes like peanut-butter)!
