salvadori | the Internet Bird Collection
I am an Italian living in Canada since 1963. I started birding in Ireland at the age of 12 when I was attending the Jesuit Belvedere College where a priest introduced me to birding. My passion for birding took off as I started banding/ringing birds in Canada in '63. I have banded about 150,000 birds, from hummingbirds to albatrosses, all over the world. I taught computer science for 30 odd years at the University of Guelph. In my retirement I do a little photography on my yearly birding trips. My favourite birds are the majestic Birds of Paradise in Papua New Guinea where I was fortunate enough to live for a year and a half. Unfortunately all my PNG bird photography was in slide form.
