MRI: About me

Martin J. Riesing

... is an enthusiastic birder, "orni" and birdwatcher since primary school. I started in the Riverine Forests of river Danube East of Vienna and recorded bird songs - somethimes drectly from my room`s windows early on. Soon after my very early wanderings I named the tits and finches my father showed me accordingly: Great Tit, Blue Tit and Greenfinch and Chaffinch...

It was clear to study biology, lead excursion since my teenage, take part in different surveys (airport, breeding atlas in Eastern Tyrol, winter geese, Avocet, ...) and count for many years a section of the Viennese part of Danube for the international waterfowl mid mounthly count.
