Hi there! I’m the PDXBirdNird, known more familiarly as Cat to my friends. I’m a gal from Portland, Oregon, who happens to have a bit of a thing about birds. Over the last few years, what began as a hobby of bird watching from the living room window expanded into a passion for birding as well as nature photography. That then grew into a love for hiking and backpacking around the region. As I get out & about the local area (which could really be anywhere in the Pacific Northwest), I enjoy capturing the birds and other amazing sights I see in order to share them with others. Unless otherwise noted, images are captured with a Nikon D5100 (although the ever-handy iPhone may make contributions as well). Minimal processing is done, in an attempt to preserve the authenticity of each experience.
Have a question about something that has been posted? Know a fantastic location for birding you would like to share? Other random questions burning to be answered? Feel free to send feedback!
