Biking for Birds

Last Saturday, on our La Jolla Coastline field trip, we ran into the Bicycle Birder, Dorian Anderson. I think we all spoke briefly with him.  What an interesting guy!

Go to his website (below) and checkout his photo of our group and the nice things he had to say about us!  – Jim Beckman

“My name is Dorian Anderson, and I am currently involved in a huge birding project for 2014. In short, I am doing a nationwide big year using only a bicycle. Since January 1, I have cycled 13,600 miles, visited 28 states, found 573 species, and raised ~$26,000 for bird conservation.”
