About your Bird Guide
Yousif began obsessively studying wildlife at an early age, especially birds and mammals, and that eventually turned into a career as a field biologist. He currently works at Birds Canada coordinating national citizen science programs: the Christmas Bird Count and eBird in Canada. Yousif also leads birding and natural history tours for Canadian-based Eagle-Eye Tours and he is always eager to share his enthusiasm with others.
