Nick Athanas | the Internet Bird Collection
Nick gave up a career in geophysics after the lure of Neotropical birds became too strong to resist. He guides for Tropical Birding, and leads many of their Neotropical tours along with a few other destinations.
Nick did a lot of audio recording early in his career, but later on developed an even greater passion for bird photography. He has contributed many photos to IBC, and also maintains a photo website at antpitta.com.
He is the lead author and photographer of Birds of Western Ecuador: A Photographic Guide, published in June 2016.
As of May 23, 2018, Nick is making all his photos available under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/).
