“Flash Gordinni: Bolt of Birding & Thunder of Twitching” is not the cocky birder that this nickname and slogan suggest (but he wrote this himself, so you may want to check out an independent source!). He is just a birder-ornithologist who didn’t let go of the emotional and humorous/crazy side of birding. Luís started birding in 1984, when he was 11 years old, and did his first ornithological work in 1991. As a biologist, he worked seven years in research (applied ecology) and 13 years in a private company (environmental consultancy). In 2020 he finished his PhD, which is about speciation in reed-buntings (using mostly acoustic, morphological and behavioural data). In birding his main interests are identification and vagrancy, not listing. Most of his birding is done within Iberia, but he has also traveled to the Atlantic Islands, Eastern Mediterranean, North Africa and Northern Europe in search of birds. Luís is one of the founders of the Portuguese Rarities Committee, in which he served from 1995 to 1997.

The picture shows Luís harassing a Desert Wheatear at Vila do Conde (Porto) on 09-Dec-2011 – what a naughty birder! (many thanks to Júlio M. Neto for providing the photo).
