"I ain't got no squid. Now bugger off"

I'm 32, born in Philadelphia and was predisposed to becoming a birder as my dad, Harry Armistead is a serious birder since the age of nine. I've been birding for over twenty years now. I worked for seven years in the ornithology department of the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia and now lead birding tours for Field Guides Incorporated. I got my start in the tour leading business while directing the tour program on St. Paul Island in the Pribilofs in 2002. My free time is spent birding along the coast between Cape May, NJ, and Cape Hatteras, NC.
