David Jensen Although he worked in underwater construction, was a commercial fisherman, and studied marine biology, although he earned a Master's degree in entomology, and although he has taken many hours of cooking classes, David Jensen is most passionate about birds. Part teacher, part missionary, he loves to help beginning birders make sense of the flights and sights and sounds that surround them. Inspired by his patient mentor David Gaines, he never tires of answering the same questions.To him, birding is a lifetime pursuit, a hobby only in the sense that you might consider being married or raising a family to be a hobby.

So what's his favorite bird? The one he's looking at or listening to when you ask him.
