Welcome to Field and Footnotes.1 We are Sarah and Elizabeth, two birders and lovers of natural history living in the most densely populated city in the United States (also known as New York).
Elizabeth is an educator and omnivorous researcher with a streak of wanderlust. I…well, I’m an editor who thinks visiting bogs and counting ducks for hours in the cold—and then writing about it—are the ingredients for a romantic weekend.
This blog is a record of our attempts to witness and catalog the natural wonders around us, both large and small.
