Kevin was introduced to birding while taking an ornithology class in Ohio and has been birding every day since. He has a degree in Resource Recreation and Tourism from the University of Idaho. He really started to hone his birding skills while living on the coast of North Carolina teaching environmental education.
Birding has brought Kevin across the country and abroad. He has led expeditions in Washington's San Juan Islands, Idaho's back country and the Southern Appalachian chain. Kevin has recently started to expand his birding outside the United States with trips to Portugal and Colombia.
Birding is becoming a life long journey for Kevin and he loves to share his knowledge and help others grow their skills in bird identification. Originally from Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, Kevin Burke now lives with his wife and two young children in Hendersonville, NC.
