TTU is for the birds, for nature, and for people.
My hope is that the information and images posted here will in some small way increase your interest in birds and nature, and your involvement in protecting our natural world.
Please check out the birding resources in the right column. At a later date, I plan to have a page for helping people get started in birding.
For now, especially if you are in North or South Carolina, visit the Carolina Bird Club website, where you will find a plethora of information about birding.
If you like photography, please visit my photography page.
If you like travel stories, I have started a travel blog at Wild Places, Wild Birds.

In the spring of 2016, I took a trip to England, and we visited Bempton Cliffs. It was an all too short, but fantastic experience. Read about the adventure here.
