My full name is Julio Axel Salgado Vélez, I am enthusiastic birdwatcher base, born and rise in this little piece of paradise call: Puerto Rico. I started birding at age 14 when there were not many birders on the island. I live in Barceloneta, a small coastal town in the north of the island.
Now I am 31 and been running tours for 10 years. I’ve been a member of the board of the Puerto Rican Ornithological Society (Sopipr.org) at times and volunteer for many other years.
I am passionate both about conservation and nature photography. Doing several works toward conservation thru the Ornithological Society; volunteering in bird monitoring programs, school talks and workshops. Visit my social media accounts to follow my work and subscribe for updates and news.
