A consummate environmental educator and well-travelled, lifelong naturalist, Kyle Horner can proudly say he’s been birdwatching since before he could walk! Over the years, he has also worked as a field technician for a variety of research projects including boreal songbirds in Newfoundland, rattlesnakes in British Columbia and neotropical migrant birds in Arizona. He is currently the Education Coordinator for Wild Ontario at the University of Guelph, a program that he helped build. While birds are at the heart of his connection to the natural world, he is enraptured with all aspects of nature and science. Kyle has a special fondness for traditionally maligned creatures and loves to show others the beauty and interest of reptiles, insects, and more.
