We are pleased to welcome Ian Davies to Team eBird. Ian will help with all aspects of coordinating the eBird project, with a particular focus on outreach and improving the Help Center to answer questions. Ian is an avid birder, photographer, and conservationist. He has been birding since age 12, when he got interested in birds at the Manomet Bird Observatory in Massachusetts. Since that time he has traveled throughout Latin America as well as trips to Asia and Africa in pursuit of all things feathered. He has worked field biology jobs from banding migrant songbirds in Massachusetts to nest searching for shorebirds in the Arctic NWR of Alaska. He enjoys poring through large flocks of gulls for rarities, standing in forests listening to dawn chorus, and long walks on the beach with shorebirds. His involvement with eBird began with submitting checklists back in 2007, progressing onwards from there to a regional reviewer, hotspot editor, and now a proud member of Team eBird at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology! Please join us in welcoming Ian to the team. And check out some of his photos here.
