Tadao Shimba was born in Tokyo, Japan, and developed an interest in nature when visiting his mothers home town in the foothills of the beautiful Japanese Alps every summer. This interest developed seriously in the ensuing years, during which he has recorded many rare birds, including four new species records for Japan. He has contributed numerous reports to various magazines and is a well-known and respected bird-watcher in Japan. He has also contributed superb photographs to various field guides and wildlife magazines in Japan, the United States and Australia.
