About Me

Who I Am and What I Do

Robert D. Hughes

I was born, raised, and currently live in Chicago. My professional background is in webmastering, front-end Web development, and content management. When I’m not working I apply my passion for communication to promoting the Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary through social media, my WordPress blog, and the Birding Montrose Point section of this website. I’m a Web guy at heart but what I really love to do is write, especially about nature and natural history.

I’ve been birding since 1978 and much of that time has been spent at Montrose. I’ve never lived far from Montrose so it’s always been easy for me to bird there before or after school or work. You could say that Montrose has been my obsession and love, and sometimes my disappointment.
