An Iowa girl, Ellen started birding at the age of 6, helping her father with his “bluebird trail” of more than 40 boxes. Ellen now puts her passion to work for birds and nature. She edited Seattle Audubon’s newsletter, Earthcare Northwest, for five years and was lead editor on BirdWeb.org. Besides rascal crows, Ellen is drawn to raptors, especially Peregrines, and she volunteered with the Seattle Peregrine Project for many years. She was a long-time member of the American Society of Crows and Ravens. And she gardens with birds in mind.
When the weather keeps her inside,she plans the next travel adventure and works on genealogy, including the DNA analysis of her entire family.
