    Paul Keim

    Once referred to as the Bat Man of Brooklyn, Paul Keim is a freelance naturalist with a real soft spot for bats, bugs and birds. As a musician, he is especially fond of crickets, katydids and cicadas. Aside from birding at Wave Hill, his favorite place to bring his binoculars is Cape May. When he is not in gardens and parks observing, he is water coloring, both indoors and out. He is a member of the Brooklyn Watercolor Society and is a fulltime professional printmaker by trade.
