Idie Ulsh, Master Birder and former president of Seattle Audubon, has been a birder for 40 years, with an expertise in birdsong. A freelance photographer, Idie took the photo of a Marsh Wren, which was the inspiration for the illustration of BirdNote’s mascot, Marty the Marsh Wren. Idie’s interest expanded from birds to other flying creatures, including butterflies and dragonflies, and she was co-editor of photographs for The Butterflies of Cascadia. She is the founder and past president of the Washington Butterfly Association, and teaches classes for both WABA and Seattle Audubon.
Idie travels widely to feed her birding and butterflying habit, and she takes photographs everywhere she goes.
