Niles Star: Dentist searches out birds of all kinds

When Niles dentist David Johnson isn’t searching for cavities, he’s outside searching for birds, reports the Niles Star. Johnson has traveled the world in pursuit of his next bird. He’s been to every state in the U.S. and dozens of countries, including Taiwan, Panama, Hong Kong, Israel and Spain to name a few. He is most proud of a bird he spotted while stationed in Alaska with the U.S. Navy in the late 1960s/early 1970s. There he got a glimpse of the Eastern Spot Billed Duck. Johnson has been bird watching since his early 20s. His goal is to physically see every variety of bird in the United States. He’s seen more than 700 so far.
