I'm Steve Bellovin. For purposes of this blog, I'm an amateur photographer, and not a birder per se. This mean not just that my identifications are likely to be imperfect, it also means that I don't track what birds I've seen. Instead, I take pictures that I, personally, think are interesting and/or striking photographically. This means that there will likely be more herons, egrets, and hawks, but also bluejays and cardinals—because I like to see and photograph them.
