About Corey Husic

Corey's interest in the natural world began at a very young age when he discovered the wonders of birds and birding. As he grew, his interests in the natural world expanded to include insects, native plants, and pretty much everything else in nature. He recently left home in eastern Pennsylvania for college in the Boston area. In the process, his yard list dropped from 185 to a whopping 23 (so far).
