Vee's home place on the Web! Why "perching bird?" Well, why not?
A "perching bird" is a layman term for songbirds, family Passeriformes, shortened to "passerine" by those that study them. Ranging from hummingbirds to warblers to crows, these all are considered "perching birds".
Vee is overly fond of them.
Vee spends her professional time working as a biological consultant in southern California, looking for endangered species like the California gnatcatcher and least Bell's vireo, writing reports about mitigation and impacts, and addressing other environmental issues. Her field work has taken her to a myraid of locations and positions, from Ohio to Tennessee to California. She is a member of the Wildlife Society and
Her private time takes her to a myraid of other locations, like Costa Rica, Oregon, and most often, the Sierra Nevada mountains of California. She also spends time at home with her husband and green cheek conure, Kitsune, who says "step up" with a lisp when she wants to come along. Amateur photography, art, crafting, and reading fill out her home time.
