It seemed appropriate to include the Black-throated Green Warbler (Setophaga Virens) in the illustration with the Black-throated Blue Warbler (Setophaga caerulescens) on the White Pine branch.
I am a naturalist. I co-founded Headwaters Environmental Station, a non-profit/tax-exempt environmental education facility at Misery Bay in the Keweenaw Peninsula with my husband, Michael Scheiwe. As a licensed Master Bird Bander and Scientific Collector, I had unprecedented opportunities to teach environment/ecological education to children for 20 years. I co-produced the program, Journeys Into A Sense Of Place, narrative readings that heighten consciousness of community and landscape (6 yrs.) for MN Public Radio. I have a working knowledge of taxidermy (study skins) and annotated and mounted plant specimens at the UWO herbarium. I appreciate the freedom of kayaking, biking, fly fishing, birding, harvesting/drying wild edibles. Illustrating, writing, hiking, photography, and cooking are essential daily activities. I earned a BS in Psychology and an MA in Education from NMU. View all posts by Raven »
