Terry Hunefeld and his wife, Ann P. Dunham, live 85 miles northeast of San Diego in Borrego Springs, a tiny desert community of 2,500, Their home is surrounded by the largest state park in California: Anza Borrego Desert State Park. The nearest traffic signal is 30 miles away; the nearest McDonald’s (read: civilization as we know it) is 35 miles away. Terry retired from his CEO position in 2007 to live life and explore – being outdoors, going out to sea, traveling the world exploring antiquities (standing stones, ruined castles & abbeys, stone circles, henges, barrows) watching the sun rise, breathing the ocean mist, studying and watching birds and generally goofing off. Terry served as coordinator/compiler for the annual Oceanside Audubon Christmas Bird Count from 2007-2012 and during the same time period served as the coordinator/administrator for Buena Vista Audubon's "SoCal Pelagic Birding" website http://www.SoCalBirding.com, a site specializing in chartering boats for one to 5 days at a time to sail far offshore into the Pacific Ocean to observe, census and photograph seabirds and marine mammals. When not leading a seabirding trip or volunteering to census seabirds aboard NOAA government research ships, Terry spends his time manning the fire lookout at High Point on Palomar Mountain, exploring Native American ruins in America's west, following Major League Baseball, birding the deserts of eastern San Diego County and traveling to and exploring with Ann "off-the-beaten-track" ruins and archaeological sites in in foreign countries.
