Brodie Cass Talbott
Brodie works as an educator with Bird Alliance of Oregon. After many years of wildland firefighting and leading river tours, he spent six years living and teaching across Asia, where his interest in birds became his passion. He has birded across five continents, and uses his experience in education and ecotourism to share his love of the outdoors with people from all ages, backgrounds, and abilities, with an eye towards increasing access to wild spaces for people from diverse communities.
Cameron Cox has been an avid birder for 27 years and works as a birding and nature photography guide. In 2013, he co-authored the Peterson Reference Guide to Seawatching: Eastern Waterbirds in Flight, a book inspired by his years observing waterbirds in Cape May, New Jersey, and Terns of North America: A Photographic Guide, to be published in the fall of 2023. His primary interest is in studying the identification of waterbirds and sharing his enjoyment and knowledge of these birds with other birders.
