John W. Vanderpoel
John became interested in birds as a teenager in the Chicago area, fascinated by the 1966 spring warbler migration. In 1988 John accepted a position with Unysis to work in Nogales, Sonora Mexico. He lived in the hills of Rio Rico and of course set up the obligatory hummingbird feeder. Soon there were five feeders and swarms of Broad-billed, Black-chinned, and the occasional Costa's. Anna's Hummingbirds were common in the winter. John dreamed (without reward) of a Plain-capped Starthroat, his nemesis hummingbird. After the two gull videos were completed, it was only logical that Hummingbirds of North America would be the next entry in the series.
John Vanderpoel lives in Niwot, Colorado where he started Peregrine Video Productions. He is an active birdwatcher who has birded extensively throughout the United States and Mexico. John is currently a member of the Colorado Field Ornithologists Rare Bird Records Committee.
