Mike grew up in southwestern Ontario, Canada where, since retiring from active medical practice nine years ago, he lives in the summer next to his beloved Point Pelee. His winters are still spent on the Upper Texas Coast where he’s lived since 1978.

Mike is also a very active eBirder and serves as the reviewer for several counties on the Texas coast and east Texas. He’s a frequent CBC participant and co-compiler of the Freeport count.  He’s lectured & led field trips for many local and national groups and festivals. His favorite is Galveston’s Feather Fest where he’s led trips since its’ inception. Previously he ran the North American Rare Bird Alert for the Houston Audubon Society for fourteen years.

He’s very accomplished in recognizing bird vocalizations and, since retiring, has become a very avid nature photographer.
