High school student interested in natural history and ecology, especially birds, arthropods, & scientific name etymologies.

Despite having lived in a landlocked state my entire life, I am curious about the ocean and marine life. I hope to one day be a marine scientist and work to protect and study the Earth’s ocean ecosystems.

I have written articles and given presentations for multiple organizations and publications. In 2020, I had the opportunity to write two articles for the American Birding Association. My first article, written in March and published on the ABA website, can be found at this link: https://www.aba.org/what-to-do-when-they-close-school/. My second article, titled “My Coronavirus Crash Course in Nature Study: Learning About Birds (& More) with iNaturalist & Instagram,” was published in the December issue of the ABA’s Birding magazine. Both of these articles focused on my experience birding and exploring during the pandemic in the United States and how I utilized various online apps to help with the identification and sharing of my photos. My most recent article was in the January 2021 issue of Birding magazine. With ornithologist Peter Pyle, I collaborated on an article about studying Long-billed Dowitchers.

In addition to adding all of my observations here on iNaturalist, I also share my favorite photos over on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/hannahfloyd_naturalist/?hl=en).
