Cameron Cox has been an avid birder for 27 years and works as a birding and nature photography guide. In 2013, he co-authored the Peterson Reference Guide to Seawatching: Eastern Waterbirds in Flight, a book inspired by his years observing waterbirds in Cape May, New Jersey, and Terns of North America: A Photographic Guide, to be published in the fall of 2023. His primary interest is in studying the identification of waterbirds and sharing his enjoyment and knowledge of these birds with other birders.
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.
