Hi friend!

Thanks for visiting and reading!

My name is Garth, and I welcome you to my personal space. 

When I say personal space, I really mean it.

I’m passionate about nature, and I use this site to share my experiences, learnings, mistakes, and ideas about birding and nature.

I have been an avid birding enthusiast for over a decade, but since last year I started with nature photography as a hobby – trying to capture the true beauty around us.

I write the articles on this site hoping that other people, who love birds and nature as much as I do, can get some inspiration and value from my experience from years of enjoying birds and animals through different lenses (mostly through Canon lenses:)).

I am a happy husband and a father of 2 little miracles. As I love nature, our family travels a lot, and to my surprise, bird watching has become something that our whole family enjoys. Fortunately, there’s no Facebook in the woods (most of the time :)).

Writer and Editor for World Birds

Hailey Brophy
About Me: My name is Hailey Brophy and I am a writer here at WorldBirds! I graduated from UC Berkeley in 2020 with a degree in history. I’ve always had a passion for nature and storytelling and am lucky to be able to put both of those passions to use writing about one of my favorite subjects: birds! My other hobbies include cooking, reading, sewing, gardening, and spoiling my pet cats rotten.

I’ve been birdwatching since I was a child and my dad gave me a field guide for local birds. That first book started a fascination which I have carried with me throughout my life. At UC Berkeley, I would spend long days studying near towering pines and watching the robins and warblers that darted between their branches.
Experiences:
UC Berkeley 2018–2020

I transferred to Berkeley from my local community college to earn my degree in history.

Art Teacher 2020–2021

After graduating, I spent a year teaching art and leadership skills for an after school program at my local community college.

Freelance Writer 2021–Present

During my time as a teacher, I began taking on odd jobs researching and writing articles for various websites. I found that many of my skills and interests intersected in my writing career and I was happy to have discovered my new path forward. Writing for WorldBirds is especially fun because I get to spend so much time researching and discussing something about which I am extremely passionate.
Experiences:  Job history, School history, projects related to nature or birds.

I come from a research background and love finding ways to apply my academic research skills to my writing projects.

I am great with deadlines and very motivated. It’s easy to keep from procrastinating when your work is as fun as mine is!

I am driven by an insatiable curiosity to explore the world around me and learn as much as I can in my time on this earth.
