Ian Montgomery

Ian Montgomery has been bird-watching since his boyhood in Ireland. As a Zoology graduate of Trinity College Dublin, he came to Australia in 1971 and did a Ph.D. in animal behaviour at Sydney University. He then followed a career in computing until, in 1993, he got the opportunity to combine zoology and computing in fisheries modelling and stock assessment. In 2003, Ian took early retirement from James Cook University in Townsville, North Queensland, where he still lives, to concentrate on bird photography. He travels Australia and the world observing and photographing birds. See more about Ian and his extensive galleries of bird photographs at www.birdway.com.au
