John Yerger, Assistant Director of Borderland Tours, facetiously describes himself as a “recovering ornithologist.”  In reality, his enthusiasm for bird behavior remains contagious.  In 2006, John helped set new records for 11 of the 12 monthly “Big Day” records for the state of Arizona.  John has served on the Board of Directors of the Arizona Field Ornithologists, the Arizona Bird Committee, and is one of the editors for Tucson Audubon’s Finding Birds in Southeast Arizona.  He has fearlessly taken on many of our office tasks, as well!
