Erin fell in love with birding while working at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. After college, she studied Red-throated Loons, Common Loons and shorebird migration at Grays Harbor, Washington. Erin is passionate about the natural histories of birds, conservation, and advocating for environmental and social justice. She has traveled throughout Latin America and East Africa and loves nothing more than sharing her knowledge and enthusiasm for birds and the natural world, and for all cultures around the world.
April Brown is a native Oregonian living with her husband and Scout, her indoor cat, in Vancouver Washington. She started birding at a very young age thanks to her dad. She became passionate about birding after volunteering at Portland Audubon in 2010 in the Wildlife Care Center. She soon became a Handler of Ambassador Animals and an Outings leader, among many other roles at Portland Audubon. She is an avid birder and spends almost every weekend in the field with her husband, to whom she passed along her addiction. She is thrilled anytime she can share the joys of birding, explore the natural world, and teach with other people from all walks of life.
