Fascinated of birds since childhood, especially by their vocalisations. Therefore, for my PhD, I worked with call types of Crossbills (Loxia) in the Palearctic region. However, my interest is much broader and extends to the identification of a wide variety of bird species, especially by their voices. You can get some insights in my blog: avesrares.wordpress.com

Although my interest in nature started with butterflies and later with bonghorn beetles, I lost interest in this subject again. Only in recent years have I started to take an interest in longhorn beetles again, and now the Bombyliidae in particular have been added to the species I am especially looking for.
