Short biography
From the age of 5 1/2 when he identified his first bird, a male Rosebreasted Grosbeak, in a Seneca, Kansas alley during the summer of 1951, Tom Shane has always been a student of Great Plains birds. He attended Kansas State University where he received a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Environmental Biology. He worked in the recycling and remanufacturing fields as a manufacturer's agent for 25 years. He is a past president of the Kansas Ornithological Society, and the author of the Lark Bunting profile for The Birds of North America sponsored by Cornell, AOU and The Academy of Natural Sciences. He is a member of the Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas ornithological societies, plus the Nebraska Ornithologists' Union and is a member of all six national ornithological organizations. After retiring he has been tutoring at the Garden City Community College library, and working for a NIH program with minority students on bird research. He and his wife Sara, also an avid bird watcher, reside in Garden City, Kansas.
