Michael Hardee

Michael has lived in the Galveston Bay area for over thirty years and has been an active birder for more than fifteen years. His great familiarity with the area helps him to be intimately familiar with many of the “hidden treasure” sites where unusual birds can often be found. One of his favorite pastimes is travelling local birding loops to identify 100 species within a day. Michael has extensive experience in teaching school children and Boy Scouts the basics of birding. He is patient with new birders of all ages, and is an outstanding instructor.
