Dick Forsman

Dick Forsman was born in 1953, in Helsinki, Finland. His passion for birds, and birds of prey in particular, started before his school years. In the 1970s, while reading Zoology and Genetics at the University of Helsinki, he spent the summers studying the breeding ecology of raptors such as the Common Buzzard, Goshawk, Sparrowhawk and Eagle Owl. During this time he became interested in methods of identification and started to study moult and plumage characters of raptors, developing ageing methods for ringers dealing with raptors.He is a freelance ornithologist who runs his own bird-watching tour company. His never-ending search for raptors often takes him abroad, Spain and the Middle East being his favourite destinations.Dick lives with his wife and two sons on the south coast of Finland.
