Karl began birding with his family at a very young age.  He participated in the inaugural Twin Falls Christmas Bird Count at age 6, approximately 35 years ago, and has not missed this CBC since.

He began learning birding-by-ear as a youngster from his father, studied ornithology under Dr. Charles Trost at Idaho State University in the nineties, and later began intense self-study in order to participate in local Breeding Bird Surveys.

Ruprecht now completes two local breeding bird surveys annually,  organizes the South Hills Important Bird Area census, collects Sage Grouse lek data for the Idaho department of Fish and Game, and completes four Christmas Bird Counts each year.  Karl especially loves exploring, photographing, backpacking, and birding southern Idaho’s high desert.

He is married to his wife Jennifer, has two children, and works in Twin Falls as a physical therapist.
