About me

Hi, my name is Oliwier Myka. I come from Białystok, a city located between Białowieża Forest and Biebrza Marshes. Since the age of thirteen I have been birding and exploring this North Eastern region of Poland.

Over the years, I have taken part in ornithological surveys of several species in the Białowieża Forest studying the biology of Pygmy Owl and rare woodpeckers. I have done similar work on the Biebrza Marshes researching the populations of Curlews, Great Snipes and other meadow-breeding waders.

In 2015 I decided to make use of my field experience and to become a wildlife guide. Since then I have guided dozens of tours and had hundreds of guests from over 25 countries.

Personally, I have a Master’s degree in biology, I am a fan of football (and regularly support my local team Jagiellonia), love cartography and Podlasie.
