About Diana Steele:

Diana is an avid birder and science writer living in Lorain County. She has been an Eastern bluebird and American kestrel nest-box monitor for Black River Audubon Society since 2016.

She served for four years on the board of the Ohio Ornithological Society as the Northeast Regional Director and Events committee co-chair. At Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge she volunteered as a bird banding assistant, and has guided field trips for The Biggest Week in American Birding and Black River Audubon Society. As a Girl Scout troop leader, she led her troop in constructing a chimney swift tower at the prairie of the Oberlin Preserve. Each member of the troop earned a Bronze Award for this project, the highest award available to a Junior Girl Scout.

She has birded around the world, including in Antarctica, China, New Zealand, Germany, and Venezuela, in addition to North America. In 2019 she traveled to both her 50th state (Alaska) and her 6th continent (Asia). Of course, her bucket list includes birding in Africa.

She is also raising the next generation of environmental stewards, having introduced her two children to her birding, blue-birding, and bird-banding hobbies.
