Kingfisher Journey- Marina Richie

The kingfisher is the halcyon bird and my muse. I often write stories of reciprocity with nature. To follow my blog via email and/or Wordpress, sign up here (right column below). Thank you.

About Marina Richie

I am a freelance writer based in Bend, Oregon. I  write about the natural world in a myriad of ways, from this personal blog to  magazine articles, interpretive panels, blogs, media, reports, websites, and books. I’m also seeking a publisher for my book-length manuscript featuring the belted kingfisher and my naturalist journeys pursuing the halcyon bird.

2019 highlights to date:

From 2016-2018, I led a project and wrote text for 66 interpretive signs with a focus on seabirds for the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge at 24 locations along the Oregon coast, mostly within Oregon State Parks. Download my portfolio.

From 2016 to 2017, I wrote about bird-friendly yards for Audubon and for Birdwatching Magazine, and continue to have a passion for that subject. The year of 2015-2016 marked my gypsy naturalist explorations, living out of my truck/camper that initiated this blog that I continue to enjoy writing.

From 2011 to 2015, I served as communications director for the Sage Grouse Initiative.

Last but not least, I’m  proud to serve as  president of the Board of Directors for Greater Hells Canyon Council.

After writing a conservation article about saving wild Asian elephants, I became inspired to bring Elephant Friendly Tea to Oregon.
