Amanda Alford fell in love with birds for the first time at the Klamath Bird Observatory’s Mountain Bird Festival in 2016. She has been hooked on all things bird ever since! She is supported in her obsession by husband Greg and children Chance and Salome, who have all come to love the flocks that frequent their feeders in southern Ashland. Her birding is often interrupted by her day job as physician anesthesiologist with Anesthesia Associates of Medford. She was drawn to the science-driven mission of the Klamath Bird Observatory, believing in the power of good science to change the world in all the right ways. She hopes her involvement will help protect KBO’s important work for generations to come.
