Shaun Kass

It all started in April 2002 at Foulweather Bluff on the northern tip of the Kitsap Peninsula in Washington State. My best friend Matt and I were botanizing and looking for Frittilaria affinis, a new bulbous plant for us easterners when we met a local gal named Rebecca who was on the bluff birding, taking a break from painting. She showed us Bonaparte’s Gull and we showed her the Frittilaria and we were all immediately hooked on each other’s discipline. Since than I have birded throughout Washington, Utah, Yellowstone, the Delaware Valley, Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands and Grand Bahama Island. I have the fortune to be able to bird by ear at least 40 hours a week while I am working as a self employed gardener mostly in and around the Wissahickon Creek Watershed. I can be found locally at Palmyra Cove and the Pennypack Ecological Trust usually trekking solo on evenings and the weekends.
