Hi! I'm an amateur naturalist and a teen volunteer at the Cincy Zoo. I have a love for birds of prey, especially hawks. Most of my identifications are for buteos. However, I identify other species such as vultures, owls, and condors as well.

I've been identifying birds for more than a year and have only recently begun identifying certain species. However, I'm learning more every day, so if I make a mistake, please inform me! I speak English and Spanish but may use a translator on occasion. Please forgive me for any bad grammar.

Feel free to tag me to ID your Buteo observations and I’ll try my best. If you feel that my IDs are wrong, please add a comment to the ID or send me a message.

In addition to my love of biology, I'm also interested in genetics and evolution. I also love art, so I may occasionally post some field sketches. If you're interested, you can check out this project: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/nature-drawing-and-journaling

If you'd like to use any of my photos (though I don't know why you would, most are just taken on my smartphone), please send me a message. I'd love to know what you'd be using it for!
