"Micah Riegner was a delightful last-minute addition to the tour with Bret Whitney and Tom Johnson, and he added tremendous value. He was attentive to everyone and performed as though he'd worked together with Bret and Tom for years....terrific!"

MICAH RIEGNER: Field Guides Leader

Micah Riegner grew up exploring the Central Arizona Highlands and was fortunate to have parents who took him along on college field courses ranging from the coast of Mexico to the mountains of Costa Rica, where encounters with tinamous, barbets, and jacamars started him birding at a young age. After graduating from high school, he made annual pilgrimages to Amazonia where he worked as a bird guide and participated in expeditions, mostly in Brazil, and he served as a field assistant following mixed-species flocks in Peru. He studied ecology and scientific illustration (some of his bird art has been published in ornithological journals, and he regularly sketches birds in the field) at Prescott College and is currently working toward a master's degree on the foraging ecology of Amazonian woodcreepers.

Micah has accompanied a number of Field Guides tours with Bret Whitney, John Coons, and Tom Johnson over the past couple of years and will be co-leading several tours in 2018 and 2019 as he works to complete his master's. He will be joining our schedule full-time beginning in June 2019. Micah is a generous guide with an easy laugh and is eager to join the Field Guides team to share his love of birds and nature. We know you will have a great time traveling with him, too!
