Greg Bodker has been a serious birder since 2006, combining his interest in birds, nature, and photography as often as possible. Greg has led birding trips for Michigan Audubon and was on its Board of Directors for three years. 

Greg now enjoys delivering birding and nature education presentations to audiences throughout Michigan.  Both live and virtual, the presentations have received excellent reviews and earned many recommendations.

Greg has birded in all of Michigan’s 83 counties and in most of North America.  He is excited to report he saw his 350th Michigan bird species in July 2022, a Southern Lapwing at the Wurtsmith Airport in Oscoda, Michigan. 

Greg has been a winner in multiple amateur photo contests including the overall winner in Michigan Nature Association’s Photo Contest in both 2020 and 2021!
