Join avid teen birder Fiona Gillogly, age 17, for a talk about her journey as a birder over the past 6+ years. Fiona will share some key early experiences that encouraged her, how mentors have had a profound impact on her, and how her passion for nature journaling supports her development as a birder and keen observer of the world.
Born and raised in the Sierra Foothills of California,Fiona Gillogly, age 17, spends time daily in the wild lands near her home. In 2016, when she discovered nature journaling and the work of John Muir Laws, she was thrilled to find something that combined her love of art and nature. Now a passionate birder, nature journaler, and naturalist, Fiona has created more than 2,000 journal pages since she began this journey. An avid birder since 2015, Fiona is a five-time recipient of the Central Valley Birding Club Youth Scholarship, enabling her to attend summer teen birding camps in birding hotspots around the United States. She has volunteered many hours on bird counts, nest box monitoring, and bird banding, gaining valuable hands-on experience in field research as well as the opportunity to observe birds up close. She has given numerous talks on birding and nature journaling, and in June 2020, the American Birding Association's Birding magazine published Fiona’s article, “A Birder’s Brain on Paper: How keeping a nature journal improves our birding experiences.” To learn more about Fiona, see more nature journal pages, or read her writing, visit fionasongbird.com.
