What I do

I’m Gorka Gorospe, birdwatcher, ornithologist, environmental interpreter and wildlife artist. Since I was a kid I have had a big passion for birds and nature, and today, it defines my lifestyle.

The human being is just another element in the complex ecological system in this planet, but most of the times it behaves as a completely independent entity. With my work I try to create awareness in people and sensibilize them, while promoting positive attitudes and respect towards the environment.

At the moment, I am working on scientific bird surveys, on creating envinromental education materials, and on nature illustrations, while working as a bird guide and nature tourism advisor.

Choose the Less Rare

When we see a bird, but we cannot see it very well, we sometimes we get excited about the possibility of a having spotted a rarity. This reaction is not uncommon, we all like to find special and unussual birds. But it’s more prudent to consider first the commoner and less rare option. More tan once something that appear to be X (a rarity) it was Y (a common species).
