Greg Bodker has been a serious birder since 2006, combining his interest in birds, nature, and photography as often as possible. He has led birding trips for Michigan Audubon and was on its Board of Directors for three years. Greg now enjoys delivering birding and nature education presentations to audiences throughout Michigan. He has birded in all of Michigan’s 83 counties and in most of North America. He is excited to report he saw his 356th bird species in Michigan in October 2023--a Limpkin in Tuscola County, Michigan.
