My name is Dave Hart, and I live, work, and play mostly in central — and occasionally coastal — North Carolina. I’m an evolving birder and photographer, having taken both pursuits up in earnest rather late in life and trying now to make up for lost time. I’m a journalist and writer by trade, and this site is a marriage of all of those things: writers gotta write, birders gotta bird, and so on. My family tolerates my obsessions with good humor and a bit of gentle teasing, which explains the name of this site: “Oh,” they’ll say, “off again to chase the Yellow-crested Bluebonnet?”
