Dr. Robert DeCandido was born and raised in the Bronx, New York City. He did his dissertation research on changes in plant species diversity in Pelham Bay Park (Bx), and compiled the first complete flora of New York City. In autumn 1987 he began the first study of migrating birds of prey in NYC at Pelham Bay Park. In Autumn 1990 he counted more than 18,000 raptors of 15 species in migration over Pelham Bay Park. From 1995-2001, he counted raptors in migration over Central Park in the fall, and studied nesting Peregrine Falcons in Manhattan each spring. He has led bird walks, wildflower walks and natural history forays in all five boroughs of New York City. Further afield, he has also conducted studies of migrating birds of prey in Malaysia, Nepal, Thailand, Turkey and Spain. Bob was a Post-Doctoral Fellow in 2003 in Eilat, Israel. In 2004-05 Bob did migration research from the observation deck of the Empire State Building, studying night migrating birds from 1050 feet above Manhattan. Currently Bob is self-employed in New York City as a leader of bird walks, and an environmental consultant and photographer. He also works as a consultant to the Wind Power Industry. Along with Deborah Allen, Bob is writing a book on the natural history of New York City from 1850 to the present.
