From Dr. Lanham: I am a man of color in love with the natural world. I'm a writer, birder, hunter, and naturalist wandering on the edge of the Blue Ridge in the Upper Piedmont of South Carolina. I pride myself on being different and difficult to label. I try hard not to be bound by stereotype or perception. I see birds as the ultimate embodiments of freedom with wings and wandering spirits that can inspire and inform our own lives. Conserving them and their habitats is a moral mission that needs the broadest and most diverse audience possible to be successful.
