Welcome to Anywhere, Earth, a chronicling of our adventures!
We are The Flammulated Beard and Bottfly: field biologists, birders, naturalists, explorers, adventurers and last but not least, lovers. Since our graduation from UNC-Asheville in the Spring of 2010, we have worked with Golden-cheeked Warblers and Black-capped Vireos in Texas, chased Gray Jays and stumbled upon Pine Martens in the Rockies of Colorado, searched for Painted Redstarts and Grace’s Warblers in New Mexico’s Gila Wilderness, and we’ve digiscoped Vermilion Flycatchers in Big Bend National Park. Last fall we volunteered with Southern Appalachian Raptor Research (SARR) at Big Bald Banding Station (BBBS) banding passerines and raptors, and assisting with other day-to-day operations. We currently live and work in Asheville, NC.
Join us, as we skip across the globe for work and pleasure, exploring new places, meeting new people and experiencing new natural wonders.
