About this humble servant
Im from Honduras that is to clarify it for everyone that has come to ask and/or doubt my nationality, all in good fun.
As you might have read some place or the other im a Biologist with an emphasis on Botany (Bota what? yes I know my plants good enough… but they arent my thing) Im very in to Birding and Avian research, that is when there is enough money to go around and invest it on going to the woods and all of that.
My whole name is Luís Daniel Germer Sánchez, if youre wondering about my last name, my grand dad came from Germany sometime in the early 20th century (dont ask if I speak German because I dont, it´s too complicated and guttural, but a very poweful language in it´s own way).
I was born ina banana plantation in La Lima near San Pedro Sula on the wonderful year of our lord of 1980, so that makes me…well you do the math. I don´t remember much from growing up, except that I didnt like school nor school mates for that matter, but hey here I am nevertheless.
On the personal note im Happily married to the most gorgeous Honduran woman you´ll ever come across, she is also a Biologist very into birds herself, we make a kickass team.
What else….hmmm details details, dont watch TV, it´s horrible, the shows the general falseness they sell you, so I prefer gaming not online off course it´s too boring. Also am Big music fan of all kinds and types of genra…diversity is what makes us grand I think.
Im not a very political person but I try to keep up with current worldwide events so conversation never goes dull…hey how bout them world conflicts? pretty crappy huh?
With my girl Estefanía during Xmas morning….filled with the spirit of the season I might add. :)
I used to run a Birding tour operator out of the back of my truck it didnt get enough clients, it was sort of frustrating but in a way it delivered a constructive perspective on my reality, in a way you could say that birds helped me establish goals in my life and find a path to follow. If you are convinced you are doing something valuable than its not a waste of time
I started this Blog on August 2006, the original idea was to set up a web site with all the buttons and the what nots, but I realized Blogging is way more easier fun!…I even installed a download section that makes the blog more constructive, helpful, better.
Im working for whoever pays the bills, which is great, it gives me all the time in the world and a wide criteria for jobs, from research, birding, wetjobs you name it if the money is good im down with it, ….so yeah why not, it´s a good job all in all.
During a Tour to a swamp searching for Jabiru
Currently the wife and myself have finished writing a filed guide for the north coast of Honduras, we did so because they told us we couldnt do it….there you go there it is. want a copy ill sign it for ya. it was a fun gig that helped us appreciate the hard work and time invested on coming up with descriptions of birds and image plates.

Anyhow, if you are ever interested in going around the boonies searching for some nice birds or other animals to watch gimme a ring or send me an email or post a comment on the blog or send some smoke signals or whatever method of communication that works best for you, It´s always nice to meet new folk to chat about world events.
Have a Good One Everybody Thanx for your visit!
