Blogger: JEFF BOUTON
Location: Port Charlotte, Florida
Jeff Bouton began working as "binoculars for hire" as a teenager, working countless seasonal field research positions for varying state & federal agencies and non-for-profit organizations across the country. After a decade of the bird bum life, he decided he preferred sharing his passion for the outdoors with others and began guiding trips professionally; mostly in Alaska where he was living at the time. While guiding trips at the ABA convention in McAllen, Texas (May 2004), Jeff accepted the position as the birding naturalist rep for Leica Sport Optics, USA and now works as the Marketing Manager here. Over the past decade, Jeff has written more than 50 articles and had hundreds of his digiscoped wildlife images published in major birding magazines. He is a contributing author on past ABA Birdfinding guides to Alaska & Florida respectively, and the Houghton Mifflin title "Good Birder's Don't Wear White".
