Meet Laura Steadman

Laura Steadman

Hi there! I LOVE birding, especially when I can share the experience with other people. I started birding in 2010, when it was part of my job as a Natural Resource Advisor for the National Park Service during the Deepwater Horizon response. These days, I do a lot of my birding in Boulder County, but love getting around to other parts of the state and beyond! I actively participate in several Christmas Bird Counts and a Breeding Bird Survey out on the plains.

My favorite trips involve more time outside of the car than in it. I believe that birding should be _fun_. I love sharing my knowledge with others, helping folks learn to identify knew species, and also love learning these things from others! I particularly enjoy birding by ear (ok, I like looking at them, too!).
