Warren Grody became a birder by accident. On a lark, his wife Linda bought him a pair of Bushnell 10x 50 binoculars for Christmas. Not long after, he identified an American Coot in his community pond and he was hooked. Since then, he has volunteered for Columbus Audubon at Green Lawn Cemetery for the past decade, served two terms on the CA Board, during which he was Treasurer for two years, and he has chaired the John Wilson Memorial Education Fund since its inception. In his spare time, Warren is an education lawyer at the law firm of Bricker & Eckler.
