  My name is Matthew Dodder. I've been birding since 1977. While my interest in birds has taken me to many exotic places in the world, some of the most enjoyable experiences have been right here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I hope you'll join me this quarter for Bay Area Birding class at the Palo Alto Adult School. Brief descriptions of some of the possible field trips can be found in the Trip section of this site as well as archived Trip reports from past class outings. For a course description, click here.

If you would like to read about my family's 2005 birding adventure in Costa Rica, you can find the full story, with loads of pictures, here.

Please visit my online store for hats, shirts and cards designed for birders.
