BIOGRAPHY
Interest in Raptor Migration (research in Nepal, Malaysia, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, Israel, western Pennsylvania and New York City). PhD in Evolutionary Ecology with research on recent plant species changes in New York City...specifically at Pelham Bay Park, Bronx County. Also in NYC, I have done much work on bird migration, breeding birds such as American Kestrels and Eastern Screech-owls (request popular and scientific articles/free). Photos in my portfolio (Israel 2003) come from Israel where I was doing post-doctoral research in Eilat (bird migration). Several folders come from Malaysia-Thailand where I did research on raptors in migration, including the discovery of a globally significant migration site in autumn 2003 in Thailand. (If interested, request my published papers on raptor migration - and other birds such as bee-eaters/drongos - in Asia...these are free.) Closer to home, I am responsible for the (so far) successful reintroduction of the Eastern Screech-Owl into Central Park. In spring and fall 2004-05 I studied the nocturnal migration of birds at the Empire State Building in Manhattan. In 2006, I worked with the Central Park Conservancy to compile a complete (historical and extant) flora of Central Park. Autumn 2007 had us doing consulting work for the Wind Power industry in western Pennsylvania (Altoona area). In 2007-12, I studied American Kestrels here in NYC, with the help of a major grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. It is the first comprehensive study of urban nesting kestrels in North America. Further afield I did the first spring raptor migration study in Thailand; and have continued my autumn migration work at Khao Dinsor (2009 to the present.) That is the resume of relevant work here...in autumn 2011 I began studying raptor migration in Nepal and this will continue through 2016 at least.

Eurasian Scops Owl - for Yale and Haskel Eisenstein and our evening owl walks in Central Park looking for the american Otus owl of Central Park, the Eastern Screech-owl. Miss you both and everyone very much...

Levant Sparrowhawk - a species for which we know not much about...we have some idea that they overwinter in East Africa but no one knows where (Chad? Sudan); and only a handful of nests have been studied in Turkey and the Caucasus.

Levant Sparrowhawk (Accipiter brevipes) compared to the Eurasian Sparrowhawk (A. nisus)

Sunbird (Male)

Blue-cheeked Bee-eater - Adult; this is the least common of the three Bee-eater species we see in Eilat each spring.

Red-backed Shrike (Adult Male);

Honey Buzzard (Adult Male); this species feeds on the larvae and adults of bees/wasps that it finds in the nest. Using its talons it rips open the hives (or digs them up) to get to the larvae etc. Adult Males have gray heads while those of females and young birds is brown. This photo is dedicated to Audrey and Laurence Poh in Malaysia. We pray for Laurence's speedy recovery and Audrey's well being too.
