What is Seagull Is Not a Dirty Word? Excellent question.

I suppose more than anything it’s a blog written by me, Kyle Horner. I’m a person who likes nature, talking about nature, and talking about talking about nature. If for some reason you want to know more about me, there are more details to be had here: www.kylehorner.com.

On this blog you’ll find posts about various topics, which may include but are not limited to:

  • Aspects of nature that I find interesting.
  • Things that annoy me.
  • The art and science of Science Communication.
  • Bird names and how they got them.
  • The antics of birdwatchers and other nature enthusiasts.
  • Things that annoy me.
  • The complicated politics of birding Facebook groups.
  • Grammar, especially as it pertains to writing about nature.
  • The complex and interesting ways in which people connect to the natural world.
  • Bugs

If you, too, are interested in the above then we’ll get along just fine. If not then I guess this blog might not be for you. You could move along I suppose, but why not stick around for a bit? It may just surprise you.

Probably not.

For a slightly longer introduction, and the logic behind the name, maybe check out the post creatively entitled Seagull Is Not a Dirty Word.
